DEC2 Genetic Analysis

Satisfactory Essays

As an example for sleep, the DEC2 gene can develop several mutations. One variation may result in reduced sleep while also reducing the recovery sleep needed, leaving a person with higher resistance to sleep loss. Another mutation can lower the gene’s ability to suppress the transactivation of genes such as CLOCK and NPAS2. Yet another variation has no observed effects on sleep or sleep deprivation.
