Cellular Switches Responsible For Maintaining Balanced Sleeping Pattern Found

Cellular Switches Responsible For Maintaining Balanced Sleeping Pattern Found

Have you been suffering sleeping disorder and find it painstaking to go to bed because you know that you won’t be able to sleep. Then relax now, you don’t have to be worried about the sleepless nights as better drugs for sleeping disorder are being prepared by researchers.

During a study, researchers of Salk Institute for Biological Studies found cellular switches which are believed to play important role in establishing a balanced sleep. The two cellular switches called REV-ERBa and REV-ERBß

The researchers have further noted that REV-ERBa and REV-ERBß also play important role in regulating eating cycle. The researchers are of the view that their findings can help in finding effective treatment for sleeping disorder.

The researchers were reported as saying, “This fundamentally changes our knowledge about the workings of the circadian clock and how it orchestrates our sleep-wake cycles, when we eat and even the times our bodies metabolize nutrients”.

Sleeping disorder is experienced by almost everyone. Those who have to work on night shifts are at a higher risk of being affected with sleeping disorder. Lack of sleep holds potential of giving birth to a number of unwanted diseases.

The researchers have found that the controversial cellular switches can be turned off in the liver and thus sleeping disorder can be treated. The researchers conducted a small experiment over mice and found that the cellular switches can be turned off.

Further studies would be conducted over patients suffering with sleep disorder. It is hoped that the findings of the researchers would help in finding effective treatment for sleeping disorder. In the coming study, the researchers would be aiming at gauging the consequence of the switched off cellular switches over the circadian rhythms and metabolism.
