In mammals, circadian rhythm is controlled by hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), and regulated by a transcriptional feedback loop with clock genes, such as circadian locomotor cycle kaput ( Clock ), Brain and muscle Arnt-like protein-1 ( Bmal1 ), Period ( Per ), Cryptochrome ( Cry ), Reverse erythroblastosis virus ( Rev-erb ), Retinoic acid receptor-related orphan receptor ( Rora ) genes, and their corresponding proteins.
