The nutritional basis of the fetal origins of adult disease
The risks of a number of chronic diseases in adulthood may have their origins before birth. Such diseases include non insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, hypertension and coronary heart disease. The article focused on nutrition as the hypothesized primar

Regulatory Pathway In Brain Development Possible Basis For Malformations
Researchers have identified a genetic regulator of brain development that sheds new light on how immature neural cells choose between proliferation and differentiation.

Gene-nutrient interactions during fetal development
This article describes the role of interaction between genes and nutrients during fetal development particularly the possible involvement in the prenatal programming of glucose metabolism in the adult.

SIDS Infants Show Abnormalities In Brain Area Controlling Breathing, Heart Rate
Infants who die of sudden infant death syndrome have abnormalities in the brainstem, a part of the brain that helps control heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, temperature and arousal,...

New Insights Into Neural Tube Defects
Environmental and genetic factors lead to neural tube defects in 1 in every 1,000 births and cause 1 in 20 of every spontaneous abortion.

Molecule Does More Than Slice and Dice RNA
Scientists has peeled back some of the mystery of how cells are able to turn off genes selectively to control critical events of development. The new insights arise from the first clear molecular images of the structure of Dicer, an enzyme that enables ce
