Expression of Period-2 (Per2)

The Period-2 (Per2) gene is transcribed to yield mRNA and the mRNA is translated to yield protein. An noncanonical E-box element in the promoter of Per2 binds the Bmal1:Clock (Arntl:Clock) heterodimer, which confers circadian expression on Per2.

Bmal1:Clock (Arntl:Clock) and Bmal1:Npas2 (Arntl:Npas2) heterodimers bind E-box elements (consensus CACGTG) in the promoters of target genes. Two E-box elements separated by 6 bp are sufficient to confer circadian transcription on a reporter gene. The Per2 promoter has a noncanonical E-box and is regulated by Bmal1:Clock. Regulation by Bmal1:Npas2 has also been demonstrated, leading to the conclusion that Clock and Npas2 are at least partially redundant.
