Abstract

Melatonin, released primarily from the pineal gland, controls the 24 hour biological clock. It is now known that melatonin also controls circannual reproductive cycles in animals and plays a role in neuroprotection, tumor-suppression, and immunomodulation. The hormone is also a potent antioxidant. This review is an attempt to document the pleiotropic biological effects of melatonin.
