After hours keeps clock researchers CRYing Overtime.
Three recent reports, including one in this issue of Cell, reveal that the circadian regulator CRY is targeted for degradation by the F box E3 ubiquitin ligase FBXL3 (Siepka et al., 2007; Busino et al., 2007; Godinho et al., 2007). These studies confirm the importance of targeted protein degradation as a key design feature of the mammalian circadian clock.
