... in the contribution to later obesity development is presented. Maternal pre-pregnancy BMI and gestational weight gain have been pointed out as independent determinants of infant later adiposity. Lifestyle interventions could have an impact on pregnant mothers through epigenetic mechanisms capable of redirecting...

... governing adrenal zonation, particularly postnatal zona reticularis development, which produce adrenal androgens in a lifetime-specific manner, remain poorly understood. Epigenetic events, including DNA and histone modifications as well as regulation by noncoding RNAs, are crucial in establishing...

.... Epigenetics and gestational programming, especially the role of microRNA, comprise a novel, rapidly developing and promising research focus on the topic of MetS. MicroRNAs are increasingly valued for potential roles in the diagnosis, stratification, and therapeutics of MetS. Early detection of risk factors...

... plaque begins early in childhood. Previous reports have shown that GHD children are prone to increased CV risks including impaired cardiac function, dyslipidemia and abnormalities in body composition. Recent studies in epigenetics and metabolomics have defined specific fingerprints that might...

... disturbances have recently been identified in transient neonatal diabetes mellitus, uniparental disomy (14) syndromes and Silver- Russell syndrome (SRS). Among these diseases, the growth retardation disorder SRS is unique because it is the first human disorder associated with epigenetic mutations that affect...

...Gavin Kelsey The hallmarks of epigenetics – the memory of defining earlier developmental events and the distinction of active and inactive genes – are exemplified by imprinted genes. In this article, I shall consider the imprinted Gnas locus in some detail. Gnas encodes the stimulatory G-protein...

... and nutrient transporter abundance. In turn, epigenetic modification of imprinted genes via changes in DNA methylation may provide a mechanism linking environmental cues to placental phenotype, with consequences for development both before and after birth. Changes in expression of imprinted genes, therefore...
