This gene is a member of the Period family of genes and is expressed in a circadian pattern in the suprachiasmatic nucleus the primary circadian pacemaker in the mammalian brain. Genes in this family encode components of the circadian rhythms of locomotor activity metabolism and behavior. Circadian expression in the suprachiasmatic nucleus continues in constant darkness and a shift in the light/dark cycle evokes a proportional shift of gene expression in the suprachiasmatic nucleus. The specific function of this gene is not yet known. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
