Mechanisms of circadian rhythm protein period2 in cardioprotection
Throughout evolutionary time, all organisms and species on Earth evolved with an adaptation to consistent oscillations of sunlight and darkness, now recognized as ‘circadian rhythm.’ Single-cellular to multi-system organisms use circadian biology to synchronize to the external environment and provide predictive adaptation to changes in cellular homeostasis. Dysregulation of circadian biology has been implicated in numerous prevalent human diseases and therefore targeting the circadian machinery may provide innovative preventative or therapeutic treatment strategies. Previous studies from our lab ...
