Transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF-alpha) has been identified as a potential output signal of the principal circadian pacemaker housed in the mammalian suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). The goal of the present study was to characterize the temporal pattern and cellular localization of TGF-alpha immunoreactivity (IR), and to examine its localization relative to astrocytic and neuronal markers in the hamster circadian system. In contrast to previous reports of circadian rhythms in TGF-alpha mRNA… CONTINUE READING
