Human adult diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes have been epidemiologically linked to poor fetal growth and development. Male offspring of rat dams fed a low-protein (LP) diet during pregnancy and lactation develop diabetes with concomitant alterations in their insulin-signaling mechanisms. Such associations have not(More)
We previously showed that offspring of rat dams receiving a protein-restricted (low protein) diet throughout pregnancy and lactation develop mammary tumors more quickly. Rapid post-weaning mammary growth and mammary tissue overexpression of insulin receptor, insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R), estrogen receptor isoform alpha and v-erb-b2(More)
Low birth weight in humans is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Humans with heart failure have a reduced beta-adrenergic response. The aim of this study was to investigate the hemodynamic response to the beta-adrenergic agonist isoproterenol and to identify molecular deficiencies that may be predictive of cardiac failure in a(More)
