Abstract

A master circadian clock resides in the brain and is required to synchronize the clocks in peripheral tissues such as the liver. Until now, it has been unclear how the central clock synchronizes the peripheral ones. New work points to one of the core clock genes, mPer2, as an essential link in this chain.
