We cloned two circadian clock genes period (Bmper) and timeless (Bmtim) from the commercial silkmoth, Bombyx mori. Sequence analysis revealed a high degree of conservation among insects for both genes. BmPER predicted from the DNA sequence is a polypeptide of 1, 113 amino acids with functional domains such as PAS, PAC, nuclear localization signal (NLS) and cytoplasmic localization domain (CLD). Deduced BmTIM consists of 997 amino acids with PER interaction site (PIS) as well as NLS and CLD… CONTINUE READING
