Good Timing

Circadian clock teams with appetite-suppressing hormone to temper bone growth

R. John Davenport

Abstract: Television commercials implore viewers to drink milk every day for strong bones, but new research provides a different connection between daily activities and a robust skeleton. An appetite-dampening hormone impinges on cogs in the body's internal clock to slow bone growth, the findings show. The work reveals a new body process controlled by the clock and bolsters connections between circadian rhythms and metabolism.
