  1. 1. Cytokines and lipids in pregnancy – effects on developmental programming and placental nutrient transfer

    Author : Susanne Lager; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adipose tissue; amino acids; cytokines; developmental programming; free fatty acids; insulin resistance; interleukin-6; lipoprotein lipase; nutrient transport; placenta; toll-like receptor 4;

    Abstract : Metabolic disturbances, in particular those associated with nutritional challenges, that take place during development, both in utero and early postnatal life, have long-lasting health consequences on an individual. The most pronounced evidence of these challenges is a deviation in birth weight. READ MORE

  2. 2. Perinatal programming and neuroendocrine function

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Cecilia Nilsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Perinatal growth and development are dependent on a sufficient metabolic, hormonal and nutritional environment. Suboptimal conditions during specific perinatal developmental windows can lead to permanent programming of physiological systems in the fetus or newborn, with implications for adult health.

  3. 3. Essential fatty acids in the perinatal period. Short and long term effects in a rat model

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Marina Korotkova; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; EFA; perinatal period; lactation; diet; adipose tissue; leptin; programming;

    Abstract : Nutritional factors during a sensitive perinatal period may lead to developmental adaptations proposed to program for pathological conditions later in life. An adequate supply of essential fatty acids (EFA) during pregnancy and lactation is crucial for optimal fetal and postnatal development. READ MORE

  4. 4. Host-Microbe Interactions: Gut Microbiota and its Effects on Developmental Programming of the Brain, Placenta and testis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Author : Maha Al-Asmakh; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Reproduction of a mammalian organism involves inherited genetic programming and environmental factors that collectively shape organ development and function in the new offspring. One such factor are the indigenous microbiota and their interactions with the host. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cardiovascular beta-adrenergic signaling Maturation and programming effects of hypoxia in a chicken model

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Isa Lindgren; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Despite the importance of β-adrenergic receptors (βARs) in cardiovascular disease, not much is known about how prenatal hypoxia effects βAR signaling in the postnatal animal. Thus, the aim of this thesis was to characterize the pre- and postnatal maturation of the cardiovascular βARs and the effects of chronic prenatal hypoxia on βAR signaling in the embryo and adult animal using the chicken as experimental model.
