New Pathway to Understanding Circadian Rhythms
http://www.hhmi.org/news/sehgal2.html

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

important biological regulators in almost all living creatures.

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