Division of Pediatric Endocrinology, Children s Hospital at Montefiore, Bronx, New York, United States of America
PLoS ONE 8:e63021. 2013..These results suggest that the interaction between in utero-perinatal environment and genotype plays a critical role in the developmental origin of health and disease...
- Neonatal exendin-4 treatment reduces oxidative stress and prevents hepatic insulin resistance in intrauterine growth-retarded ratsElisabeth L Raab
Department of Pediatrics, Children s Hospital Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California, USA
Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 297:R1785-94. 2009..These results indicate that exposure to exendin-4 in the newborn period reverses the adverse consequences of fetal programming and prevents the development of hepatic insulin resistance...
- Maternal substrate utilization programs the development of the metabolic syndrome in male mice exposed to high fat in uteroKirsten Hartil
Department of Biochemistry, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, New York 10461, USA
Pediatr Res 66:368-73. 2009..In contrast, male offspring of G4+/- HFD mothers did not exhibit any characteristics of metabolic syndrome. These data suggest that differences in maternal substrate utilization influence offspring metabolic phenotype...
