Controlling body clock

  This study established an efficient method for conducting gene-rescue experiments in mutant mice. Applying the method to knock in a series of CRY1 mutants into Cry1-/-:Cry2-/- mice, researchers discovered that multisite phosphorylation around the flexible loop domains of CRY1 determine the period length of the mammalian circadian clock in …
