Barca-Mayo O and López M (2021) Astrocyte Clocks and Glucose Homeostasis. Front. Endocrinol. 12:662017. doi: 10.3389/fendo.2021.662017 The endogenous timekeeping system evolved to anticipate the time of the day through the 24 hours cycle of the Earth’s rotation. In mammals, the circadian clock governs rhythmic physiological and behavioral processes, including the daily oscillation in glucose metabolism, food intake,...
