  • ERα ligands regulate the expression of CLOCK at the transcription level.

    Analysis of CLOCK mRNA levels in MCF-7 cells by real-time PCR. MCF-7 cells were cultured in phenol red free medium and charcoal striped FCS medium for 2 days before being treated with E2 and the expression of CLOCK was then analyzed by real-time PCR.

    E2 = 17beta-Estradiol.
