BACKGROUND Breast milk nutrient content varies with prematurity and postnatal age. Our aims were to conduct a meta-analysis of preterm and term breast milk nutrient content (energy, protein, lactose, oligosaccharides, fat, calcium, and phosphorus); and to assess the influence of gestational and postnatal age. Additionally we assessed for differences by(More)
We recently showed that phosphoinositide-3-kinase-gamma-deficient (PI3Kgamma-/-) mice have increased cardiac contractility without changes in heart size compared with control mice (ie, PI3Kgamma+/+ or PI3Kgamma+/-). In this study, we show that PI3Kgamma-/- cardiomyocytes have elevated Ca2+ transient amplitudes with abbreviated decay kinetics compared with(More)
We have previously shown that the foetal guinea-pig hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is activated near the time of parturition and that this is associated with changes in limbic glucocorticoid receptors (GR) and mineralocorticoid receptors. In the present study, we hypothesized that the foetal hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) and(More)
