New Pathway to Understanding Circadian Rhythms
HHMI researchers have determined that a protein involved in neurofibromatosis type 1, a human nerve disorder, plays an important role in communicating crucial information about the circadian clock. Circadian rhythms, the patterns of activity that occur on a 24-hour cycle, are

Research published in the September 21, 2001, issue of the journal Science.
