BMAL1:CLOCK,NPAS2 activates circadian gene expression (R-HSA-1368108) [Homo sapiens]

Pathway
Summation

As inferred from mouse, BMAL1:CLOCK (ARNTL:CLOCK) and BMAL1:NPAS2 (ARNTL:NPAS2) heterodimers bind to sequence elements (E boxes) in the promoters of target genes and enhance transcription (Gekakis et al. 1998, reviewed in Munoz and Baler 2003).
