Özet

Aim: Melatonin is an endogenous hormon, which oscillates from pineal gland and affects through melatonin receptors (MT1 and MT2) denoting different physiologic roles, accountable to regulate biological rhythm. This study is to known first study to show the regulation of melatonin synthesis by the melatonin receptor expressions in pineal gland.
