Circadian Regulation Of Locomotor Activity And Skeletal Muscle Gene Expression In The Horse: This study demonstrates that equine muscle function is influenced by circadian rhythms (body clock), especially when stabled. Physical activity can act to synchronise molecular clocks, leading to increased gene expression at the most advantageous time of day, meaning this discovery could be beneficial to optimise equine daily training schedules.
