This unusual pharmacological property of sazetidine-A makes it, potentially, an excellent research tool to distinguish between the role of activation(More)
Although food availability is a potent synchronizer of the peripheral circadian clock in mammals, the underlying mechanisms are unclear. Here, we show that hepatic Bmal1, a core transcription activator of the molecular clock, is post-transcriptionally regulated by signals from insulin, an important hormone that is temporally controlled by feeding.
