Abstract Background: Although the number of circulating immune cells is subject to high-amplitude circadian rhythms, the underlying mechanisms are not fully understood. Results: Daytime increases in total WBC and lymphocytes were suppressed and slightly phase- delayed along with plasma corticosterone levels in Clock mutant mice. The peak RBC rhythm was significantly reduced and phase-advanced in the Clock mutants. Anatomical examination revealed hemoglobin-rich, swollen red spleens in Clock mutant mice, suggesting RBC accumulation. Conclusion: Our results suggest that endogenous clock-regulated circadian corticosterone secretion from the adrenal gland is involved in the effect of a Clock mutation on daily profiles of circulating WBC. However, intact CLOCK seems unnecessary for generating the rhythm of corticosterone secretion in mice. Background of circulating and marginal cell components of tissues and The number of circulating white blood cells WBC organs, influx from storage sites, cell proliferation, release involved in immune defense is subject to high-amplitude of de novo cells into the circulation, and cell destruction circadian rhythms [1,2]. Periodic changes in the number and removal [2].

The expression levels of leukocytes including lymphocytes, neutrophils, and monocytes and of CAMs are highest when plasma cortisol concentrations are max- the circadian rhythm in the number of blood cells is imal [23]. Interestingly, we previously demonstrated that dependent on core components of the circadian clock.

The present study found that the acro- Steroid hormones play important roles in generating the phase of total WBC and lymphocytes numbers was circadian rhythm of circulating blood cells [17].

Patients delayed for few hours in accordance with that of plasma with an adrenal insufficiency or with adrenal hyperplasia CS levels in Clock mutant mice.

Our present results suggested that circa- ing RBC is regulated not only by the consequence of phys- dian clock-regulated diurnal CS secretion from the adre- iological rhythms such as feeding and sleeping but also by nal gland is involved in the effect of the Clock gene the endogenous circadian clock. The acrophase of the mutation on circadian changes in the numbers of periph- diurnal RBC rhythm is near the light-dark transition in eral circulating WBC. The acrophase of circulating RBC in diur- nally active humans is also at the time of the light-dark The circadian fluctuation of plasma CS concentration is transition [16].

However, nally active humans and nocturnally active rodents does the present study identified a circadian CS rhythm in Clock not apply to the RBC rhythm.

This resembles the expres- mutant mice with a Jcl:ICR background under LD condi- sion of circadian clock genes in the suprachiasmatic tions, although the acrophase was delayed in mutant nucleus SCN , which is the master circadian pacemaker mice.

These remarkable strain differences of the effect of a that controls most of the physiological circadian rhythms Clock gene mutation on circadian CS secretion are very of mammals.

A recent phase of WBC seems to be affected by physiological study using the Cre-LoxP system found that CLOCK is not rhythms such as those of feeding, locomotor activity and essential for generating the circadian locomotor rhythm blood CS levels. Mutant CLOCK protein might provoke gain- of-function effects in the mutant mice, because the Clock The amplitudes of RBC rhythms are very small and are of allele is truncated and causes a deletion of the transactiva- interest from a physiological viewpoint [32].

Circulating tion domain, which leaves DNA binding intact. The phe- RBC numbers are determined not only by their clearance notypic differences such as CS rhythm, locomotor from the peripheral circulation in the spleen and liver but activity [7], and metabolism [27] between the Clock also by their production in bone marrow.

Actually, circu- mutant mice with different backgrounds might reflect lating reticulocytes have a circadian rhythm, suggesting expression levels of the truncated CLOCK protein, which their circadian periodic release from the bone marrow in the Jcl:ICR background would interfere less with circa- [16].

The primary erythropoietic regulator EPO controls dian and other physiological processes. The present study RBC production.

We also found that plasma levels of EPO demonstrated that intact CLOCK is not essential for either were slightly but significantly increased in Clock mutant circadian CS secretion or the circadian fluctuation of cir- mice throughout the day. On the other hand, a study of blood samples withdrawn over a period of 24 h has established a circadian rhythm The mean cell volume MCV of erythrocytes in the in E-rosette-forming T cells in vitro that persists in 4-day- present study did not appear to exhibit circadian rhyth- old cell cultures [28].

This finding suggests that fluctua- micity or to show genotypic differences. Figure 3 shows tions in some lymphocyte subpopulations depend on a that HGB levels in the blood were closely correlated with cellular circadian oscillator [2].

We revealed that many cir- the number of RBC. These results suggest that the availa- cadian output genes, as well as those in the core circadian bility of erythropoietic iron remained intact in the Clock clock, are governed by CLOCK protein at the level of tran- mutant mice.

In the present study, the circadian rhythm of circulating neutrophils was a damped bimodal process The lifespan of circulating RBC produced in bone marrow in Clock mutant mice, although that of lymphocytes was is determined by their elimination from the spleen.

J Immunol , For some reason I had assumed t One thing I tend to forget when considering the Imerial Guard is that when we think of the countless billions that die everyday in the wars of the Imerium; regiments tossed into the meat grinder to take a nameless hill, the barely trained conscript given a lasgun from the fellow in front of him that just took a bolt round to the face, these are the "normal" Guardsmen of the Imerium, and for some reason, I always lumped the Cadians in there with these poor schlocks.

For some reason I had assumed that the Cadians were the lowest common denominator. I mean it isn't like they were Catachans, those guys grew up on a jungle death world!

The trap a fell into is that although Cadia isn't technically a death world, the Cadians treat it as if it is. It says in the fluff that Cadians learn to strip a lasgun before they learn to walk.

They are inducted into the guard at age The thing I forget about the Cadians is that they are all badasses!

I think the best part about the book Cadian Blood by Aaron Dembski-Bowden is that he disabused me of the notion that Cadians average soldiers. They are extraordinary soldiers. This book tells the tale of the Shrine World of Kathur. A plague has gripped the planet, and chaos cults are springing up all over the world.

And as the plague consumes the population, those that have fallen to the plague, rise again to attack those that haven't yet succum. It has been decided that the world is a lost cause, but too important to lose. This is where Captain Thade and the rest of the Cadian 88th Mechanized comes in. They are ordered onto the world as part of the vanguard of the Reclamation forces.
