CRY2, a component of the bird internal clock

Scientists in the Keays Lab have investigated the expression, localisation, and interaction partners of the cryptochrome CRY2 in the pigeon retina. They found that CRY2 interacts with many major factors involved in the avian circadian clock, and that it may bind the microtubule cytoskeleton of photoreceptor cells. The study is now published in the journal Scientific Reports.
