protein binds to another molecule called BMAL and stabilizes it, which shifts the clock in time
As the level of PER protein rises during the daytime, reaching its peak around evening, it somehow puts a break on CLOCK and BMAL, thereby reducing its own level during nighttime.
But, until now, the precise nature of the nighttime brake and what let CLOCK and BMAL proteins overcome this brake to raise Per protein levels again each morning was a mystery.
