(Wiley-blackwell Publishing, IncMaldenEUA, 2009)
Fetal-Maternal Interactions in the Synepitheliochorial Placenta Using the eGFP Cloned Cattle Model
Background: To investigate mechanisms of fetal-maternal cell interactions in the bovine placenta, we developed a model of transgenic enhanced Green Fluorescent Protein (t-eGFP) expressing bovine embryos produced by nuclear ...
Maternal protein restriction during pregnancy affects gene expression and immunolocalization of intestinal nutrient transporters in rats
Intrauterine dietary restriction may cause changes in the functioning of offspring organs and systems later in life, an effect known as fetal programming. The present study evaluated mRNA abundance and immunolocalization ...
Characterization of mitochondrial genotypes in the foundation herd of the Canchim beef cattle breed
The Canchim (5/8 Charolais + 3/8 Zebu) beef cattle breed was developed at Southeast-Embrapa Cattle to take advantage of hybrid vigor and to combine the higher growth rate and beef quality of Charolais with tropical adaptations ...
Accuracy of fetal gender determination in maternal plasma at 5 and 6 weeks of pregnancy
Objective To assess the viability of the early diagnosis of fetal gender in material plasma before 7 weeks of pregnancy by real-time polymerase chain reaction (real-time PCR), starting at 5 weeks of pregnancy.Method ...
Maternal protein restriction induce skeletal muscle changes without altering the MRFs MyoD and myogenin expression in offspring
Stimuli during pregnancy, such as protein restriction, can affect morphophysiological parameters in the offspring with consequences in adulthood. The phenomenon known as fetal programming can cause short- and long-term ...
