    This review discusses the importance of placental vascular development, as reflected by placental angiogenesis and placental blood flow, to placental function in normal pregnancies. We then summarize our current understanding of how maternal stress, including inadequate maternal nutrition as...

    Introduction: Maternal nutritional and metabolic factors influence the developmental environment of the fetus. Virtually any nutritional factor in the maternal blood has to pass the placental membranes to reach the fetal blood. Placental weight is a commonly used measure to summarize placental...

    Syncytiotrophoblast lines the intervillous space of the placenta and plays important roles in fetus growth throughout gestation. However, perturbations at the maternal-fetal interface during placental malaria may possibly alter the physiological functions of syncytiotrophoblast and therefore...

    Placenta, serve as a mediation of nutrition and information exchange between mother and fetus, plays a vital role in maintaining the intrauterine growth and development of fetus. Placental function is based on its normal shape. Placental shape is often influenced by many factors, such as...

    Abstract  Although there are published studies of proline biochemistry and nutrition in cultured cells and postnatal animals, little is known about proline metabolism and function in the conceptus (embryo/fetus, associated placental membranes, and fetal fluids). Because of the invasive...

  • Expression of Organic Anion Transporting Polypeptide 1c1 and Monocarboxylate Transporter 8 in the Rat Placental Barrier and the Compensatory Response to Thyroid Dysfunction. Sun, Yi-na; Liu, Yuan-jun; Zhang, Lu; Ye, Yan; Lin, Lai-xiang; Li, Yong-mei; Yan, Yu-qin; Chen, Zu-pei // PLoS ONE;Apr2014, Vol. 9 Issue 4, p1 

    Thyroid hormones (THs) must pass from mother to fetus for normal fetal development and require the expression of placental TH transporters. We investigate the compensatory effect of placental organic anion transporting polypeptide 1c1 (Oatp1c1) and monocarboxylate transporter 8 (Mct8) on...

  • Improving amino acid nutrition to prevent intrauterine growth restriction in mammals. Lin, Gang; Wang, Xiaoqiu; Wu, Guoyao; Feng, Cuiping; Zhou, Huaijun; Li, Defa; Wang, Junjun // Amino Acids;Jul2014, Vol. 46 Issue 7, p1605 

    Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) is one of the most common concerns in human obstetrics and domestic animal production. It is usually caused by placental insufficiency, which decreases fetal uptake of nutrients (especially amino acids) from the placenta. Amino acids are not only building...
