However, despite strong interest in gastropod circadian rhythms, and the advantages of this group of animals for investigating the neuronal bases of behaviors, there has been very little progress in identifying circadian genes in gastropods, with the exception of the transcript for period in Bulla gouldiana (Constance et al., 2002), the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH)-containing proteins BMAL1 and CLOCK in Biomphalaria glabrata, Lottia gigantea, and Patella vulgate (Bao et al, 2017), and some automated annotations on GenBank at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI, Bethesda, MD).

To obtain sequences for our phylogenetic analysis, we used the BLASTp algorithm (Johnson et al., 2008) and an approach detailed previously (Speiser et al., 2014) to search the predicted protein databases associated with the genomes of the annelid worm Capitella teleta, the crustacean Daphnia pulex, the chicken Gallus gallus, the gastropod mollusc Lottia gigantea, the mouse Mus musculus, the flour beetle Tribolium castaneum, and the western clawed frog Xenopus tropicalis.
