BMAL1 aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator-like protein. A circadian regulatory protein and substrate of casein kinase I epsilon. Heterodimers bind to an E-box element (3'-CACGTG-5'), thereby activating transcription of PER1, and possibly of other circadian clock proteins. Seven splice isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
