Abstract

Recent studies suggest that melatonin 1b (Mel 1b ) receptor, as well as melatonin 1a (Mel 1a ) receptor, is involved in the modulation of circadian rhythms in mammals. Mutational analysis was performed in the entire coding region of the human Mel 1b receptor gene using genomic DNA from sleep disorder subjects. We have identified two missense mutations, G24E and L66F. However, neither is likely to be associated with sleep disorders in our study population. One of the subjects with non-24-h sleep-wake syndrome carries missense mutations in both the Mel 1a and Mel 1b receptor genes-
