BACKGROUND Cell death and differentiations are the critical processes in developing fetal brain, where ethanol induces lots of changes in gene expression patterns of fetal nervous system leading to fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS). The objective of the present study was to observe whether maternal ethanol exposure can alter gene expression pattern in mother and in fetus during mid and late prenatal stage. MATERIAL/METHODS 10% ethanol was orally applied to female Spraque-Dawley rats and fetuses… CONTINUE READING
