With pyxplot (similar to gnuplot, but better):

set multiplot
set term pdf
set width 6
set output './Kidd_2015-B.pdf'
set fontsize 0.65
set key top right

set origin 0,0
set xtics ("12" 12, "18" 18, "24" 24,"6" 30)
set xlabel 'circadian time'
set ytics 0,0.2,1.4
set ylabel 'amount of TIM protein'
set label 1 'nuclear translocation' at 16.8,1.12
set label 2 'transcription/translocation' at 11.3,0.2 rotate 50
set label 3 'repression/degradation' at 24.3,1 rotate -52

plot [9:33][0:1.5] './Kidd_2015-Fig2.csv' index 0 title 'lower 
temperature' with lines colour blue, './Kidd_2015-Fig2.csv' index 1 
title 'higher temperature' with lines colour red

set display

The date file Kidd_2015-Fig2.csv is in the appendix.
I got it by digitizing the plot in the publication by using engauge
