Most aspects of mammalian cell function are organised to a daily rhythm, though exactly how this is achieved is poorly understood. Informed by recent insights from yeast, we propose and test a general mechanism whereby coupled rhythms of mTORC activity, protein turnover, ion transport and protein sequestration drive facilitatory rhythms in metabolic flux and substrate utilisation. We find this model may be adequate to account for cell-autonomous circadian regulation of processes as diverse as cardiomyocyte excitability and fibroblast migration.
