Abstract

We tested whether the human Clock (hClock) gene, one of the essential components of the circadian oscillator, is implicated in the vulnerability to delayed sleep phase syndrome (DSPS) and non-24-hour sleep-wake syndrome (N-24). Screening in the entire coding region of the hClock gene with PCR amplification revealed three polymorphisms, of which two predicted the amino acid substitutions R533Q and H542R. The frequencies of the R533Q and H542R alleles in patients with DSPS or N-24 were very low and not significantly different from those in control subjects. A T3111C polymorphism in the 3′-untranslated region of hClock, which had been reportedly associated with morning or evening preference for activity, was also investigated; the results showed that the 3111C allele frequency decreased in DSPS. Polymorphisms in the coding region of the hClock gene are unlikely to play an important role in the development of DSPS or N-24. The possible contribution of the T3111C polymorphism to DSPS susceptibility should be studied further.
