Snoozing worms help Penn researchers explain the evolution of sleep
Date:1/11/2008

gene, which encodes a protein kinase and is regulated by a small molecule called cyclic GMP, has been previously studied but not suspected to play a role in sleep regulation. The findings suggest a potential role for this gene in regulating human sleep and may provide an avenue for developing new drugs for sleep disorders.

It opens up an entire new line of inquiry into the functions of sleep, notes Penn Center for Sleep Director and co-author Allan I. Pack, MB, Chb, PhD.
