Circadian Rhythm Research Tools

Circadian rhythm refers to the natural endogenous process that regulates the sleep-wake cycle by responding to light changes in the environment. It is a part of the body’s internal clock that repeats roughly every 24 hours. It affects most living things, including animals, plants, and microbes. All life forms have adapted their biological rhythm so that it is synchronized with the Earth’s rotation. The circadian rhythm regulates critical functions such as sleep/wake cycle, behavior, hormone levels, metabolism, etc. Disruptions in the internal clock due to chronic stress or other factors could contribute to metabolic disorders and increased susceptibility to disease. BioVision is pleased to offer an array of antibodies and other reagents to facilitate the study of the circadian rhythm and its association with metabolism and immune function.
