Cryptochrome 2 (Cry2) is a blue light-dependent regulator of the circadian feedback loop. It inhibits CLOCK|NPAS2-ARNTL E box-mediated transcription and acts in conjunction with CRY1 in maintaining period length and circadian rhythmicity. Cry2 has no photolyase activity. It is capable of translocating circadian clock core proteins such as PER proteins to the nucleus [taken from the Universal Protein Resource (UniProt) www.uniprot.org/uniprot/Q49AN0].
Alternative names for
Cry2 Antibody include Cryptochrome-2 antibody,
