Behavioral circadian rhythms disintegrate progressively in the R6/2 mouse model of Huntington's disease (HD), recapitulating the sleep-wake disturbance seen in HD patients. Here we show that disturbances in circadian pacemaking are not restricted to the brain, but also encompass peripheral metabolic pathways in R6/2 mice. Notably, circadian rhythms of(More)
The R6/2 transgenic mouse model of Huntington's disease (HD) shows a disintegration of circadian rhythms that can be delayed by pharmacological and non-pharmacological means. Since the molecular machinery underlying the circadian clocks is intact, albeit progressively dysfunctional, we wondered if light phase shifts could modulate the deterioration in daily(More)
