Circadian expression, light-responsiveness and localization of clock genes, rPer1 and rPer2, were examined in the rat retina under constant darkness. A significant circadian variation was detected in rPer2 transcript levels with a peak at ZT14, but not in the rPer1. A light pulse given after constant darkness of 3 days increased both rPer1 and rPer2 expression phase-dependently, while rPer1 was induced at more times than rPer2. A major site of these gene expression within the retina was the… CONTINUE READING
