Vasopressin receptor V1a regulates circadian rhythms of locomotor activity and expression of clock-controlled genes in the suprachiasmatic nuclei.


The suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) serve as the principal circadian pacemakers that coordinate daily cycles of behavior and physiology for mammals. A network of transcriptional and translational feedback loops underlies the operating molecular mechanism for circadian oscillation within the SCN neurons. It remains unclear how timing information is transmitted… (More)
