Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) is the causative agent of genital herpes. Matsuzawa et al have demonstrated that, in a mouse model, HSV-2 pathology is influenced by the time infection occurs. Increased expression of the HSV-2 receptor Nectin-1 under the control of CLOCK coincided with an increase in viral titer suggesting that HSV-2 infection is regulated by the host circadian clock.
