(2018) published a study reporting on the transcript sequences for most of the core circadian clock genes
in the limpet Cellana rota.

It is inherited in autosomal dominant mode, caused by circadian cycle irregularity as circadian clock genes
are key players in its development.
In conclusion, our results showed that the 3111T/C variant of CLOCK gene
was closely related to the occurrence of motor fluctuation and sleep disorders in a northeastern Chinese population.
The general anesthetic sevoflurane affects the expression of clock gene
mPer2 accompanying the change of NAD+ level in the suprachiasmatic nucleus of mice.
In mammals, circadian rhythm is controlled by hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), and regulated by a transcriptional feedback loop with clock genes
, such as circadian locomotor cycle kaput ( Clock ), Brain and muscle Arnt-like protein-1 ( Bmal1 ), Period ( Per ), Cryptochrome ( Cry ), Reverse erythroblastosis virus ( Rev-erb ), Retinoic acid receptor-related orphan receptor ( Rora ) genes, and their corresponding proteins.[sup] Clock and Bmal1 are two critical transcriptional activators, which stimulate the expression of Per and Cry at the beginning of the day.
Recent DNA microarray analysis of islets derived from Tg mice at 4 weeks of age showed that the mRNA levels of E-box-driven clock genes
were markedly reduced in the islets of Tg mice (Table 1) , indicating malfunction of the molecular clock in the islets of Tg mice.
An amplified product of 1597 bp was obtained in strains isolated from north facing slopes while 1598 bp product was amplified in strains isolated from south facing slope for frequency clock gene
. Point mutations on nucleotide 115 T(A), 947 G(T), and 948 T(G) position were observed in S2 and S3 strains, when aligned against reference sequence of S.
There is a link between clock gene
expression and sleep-related processes; however the underlying regions supporting sleep homeostasis have received relatively limited focus.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, the human body consists of circadian clock genes
, or simply known as an internal body clock, which regulates the way the body works each day.
