Recent studies on mice with mutations in the Clock gene have shown that this mutation disrupts oestrus cyclicity and interferes with successful pregnancy. In order to determine whether two other molecular components of the main clock, namely the period genes, Per1 and Per2, have an effect on the length of the oestrous cycle and the reproductive success, we… CONTINUE READING
