...Peter D. Gluckman; Jane E. Harding Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) is the primary hormone influencing fetal growth in later gestation. The regulation of fetal IGF-I in utero is primarily influenced by placental glucose transfer, which regulates fetal insulin release. Furthermore, insulin has...

During the first trimester of pregnancy, no strict endocrine mechanisms are involved, but embryonic growth might be controlled at the level of the individual organs by supply of nutrients and by locally active growth...

...A.L. Fowden; C. Sibley; W. Reik; M. Constancia In mammals, imprinted genes have an important role in feto-placental development. They affect the growth, morphology and nutrient transfer capacity of the placenta and, thereby, control the nutrient supply for fetal growth. In particular...

According to recent evidence, insulin stimulates fetal growth via insulin receptors and insulin-like growth factor receptors of the type 1 [ 18 ].
