L-Tryptophan Metabolism in Pregnant Mice Fed a High L-Tryptophan Diet and the Effect on Maternal, Placental, and Fetal Growth


Excess L-tryptophan (L-Trp) in the diet decreases fetal body weight. However, the relationship between L-Trp concentration and its effects on maternal, placental, and fetal growth are not well-understood. We investigated the effects of excess L-Trp intake on maternal, placental, and fetal growth. Female mice were fed a 20% casein diet (control diet) or… (More)
