CLOCK Gene May Hold Answers to Human Brain Evolution

CLOCK-migration.jpg

A gene controlling our biological clocks plays a vital role in regulating human-specific genes important to brain evolution. The findings from the O’Donnell Brain Institute open new paths of research into how CLOCK proteins produced by the CLOCK gene affect brain function and the processes by which neurons find their proper place in the brain.

The field of circadian rhythms is being recognized with a Nobel Prize this year for the discovery of a fruit fly gene controlling the biological clock. But a series of more recent advancements – notably the first circadian gene in mammals discovered by UT Southwestern’s Dr. Joseph S. Takahashi – have elevated the research beyond flies and positioned scientists to unlock many of the mysteries of human health and behavior.
