A recent study found that South African endurance athletes are likely to be morning-types and carry the PER3(5) allele, which has been associated with a preference for mornings. The aim of this study was to measure the response of morning-type cyclists to a standardised bout of exercise performed at different times of the day. Participants ncluded 20(More)
A link between diurnal preference and a variable number tandem-repeat (VNTR) polymorphism in the PERIOD3 gene (PER3) has been demonstrated: the longer PER3(5) and shorter PER3(4) alleles with preferences for mornings and evenings, respectively. As many competitive events in South Africa for individual athletes are scheduled for the early mornings, we(More)
Individual sport athletes have been shown to comprise unusually high proportions of morning-types (MTs) coupled with a higher prevalence of the morningness-associated PERIOD3 variable number tandem repeat (VNTR) allele, PER35. The degree to which type of sport selected is influenced by either chronotype or genotype, or the extent to which sporting(More)
