High fructose intake during pregnancy adversely affects insulin resistance, lipid profiles, and affects placental gene expression of nutrient transporters and angiogenesis in rat dams and their pregnant offspringDownload
Fructose intake has increased over the past several decades due to high consumption of sugary foods and drinks. In non-pregnant humans and animals, high fructose intake results in hyperlipidemia, insulin resistance and weight gain, although its effects on metabolic adaptations to pregnancy and on...
Intravaginal lactic acid bacteria modulated local and systemic immune responses and lowered the incidence of uterine infections in periparturient dairy cowsDownload
The objective of this investigation was to evaluate whether intravaginal infusion of a lactic acid bacteria (LAB) cocktail around parturition could influence the immune response, incidence rate of uterine infections, and the overall health status of periparturient dairy cows. One hundred pregnant...
The placenta is an essential transitory fetal organ responsible for the key processes of nutrient, oxygen, and waste transfer between the mother and the fetus throughout gestation. Placental size is, importantly, known to correlate to fetal weight, and the malfunction and malformation of the...
Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is the most common cause of congenital infection in newborns. One mechanism for this virus to reach the fetus is to cross the placenta through the syncytiotrophoblast layer. Accumulation and protection of pathogens in the syncytiotrophoblast could affect the systemic...
Understanding the role of diets enriched in long chain fatty acids on postpartum reproductive function and embryo development in dairy cowsDownload
The objectives of this work were to investigate the influence of diets enriched in long chain fatty acids on feed intake, calf birth weight, maternal and neonatal fatty acid profiles, milk production, postpartum reproductive function, early embryonic development and its transcriptome profile in...
