Epigenetic regulation of gene expression is a key molecular mechanism linking environmental factors with the genome with consequences for health status throughout the life course. According to the modern view, epigenetic changes are far more likely than genetic changes to be directed, and many of these changes are manifestly adaptive. Recent experimental studies clearly indicate that environmental fluctuations can induce specific and predictable epigenetic-related molecular changes, and support… CONTINUE READING
