It is widely recognized that BMAL1 is an essential subunit of the primary transcription factor that drives rhythmic circadian transcription in the nucleus. In a surprising turn, Lipton et al. now show that BMAL1 rhythmically interacts with translational machinery in the cytosol to stimulate protein synthesis in response to mTOR signaling.
