Published Online:27 Feb 2019 https://doi.org/10.1096/fj.201801889R Abstract Working atypical schedules leads to temporal misalignments between a worker’s rest-activity cycle and their endogenous circadian system. Several studies have reported disturbed centrally controlled rhythms, but little is known on shift workers’ peripheral clocks. Here, we assessed central clock markers, urinary 6-sulfatoxymelatonin and salivary cortisol, and clock gene expression in...
