Recent studies suggest that the impairment of circadian clock function causes various pathological conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, and alcoholism, and an altered mRNA expression of clock genes was found under these conditions. However, it remains to be determined whether clock gene expression varies depending on metabolic conditions even in healthy people. To address this issue, we investigated the associations of metabolic parameters and alcohol consumption with mRNA expression of clock… CONTINUE READING
