MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: The protein encoded by this gene plays a central role in the regulation of circadian rhythms. The protein encodes a transcription factor of the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) family and contains DNA binding histone acetyltransferase activity. The encoded protein forms a heterodimer with Arntl (Bmal1) that binds E-box enhancer elements upstream of Period (Per1, Per2, Per3) and Cryptochrome (Cry1, Cry2) genes and activates transcription of these genes. Per and Cry proteins heterodimerize and repress their own transcription by interacting in a feedback loop with Clock/Arntl complexes. Polymorphisms in this gene may be associated with behavioral changes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. Two transcripts encoding the same protein have been found for this gene.

PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit abnormal circadian phase. Mice homozygous for a spontaneous mutation exhibit abnormal circadian rhythm, reproduction, behavior, hair cycle, macronutrient absorption, and metabolism. [provided by MGI curators]
