Metabolic Responses to Protein Restriction During Pregnancy in Rat and Translation Initiation Factors in the Mother and Fetus

Abstract

A low-protein diet during pregnancy in the rat results in intrauterine growth restricted (IUGR) fetuses. The adaptive responses of the mother to low-protein diet and the mechanisms of IUGR in this model are not understood. In the present study, we report the maternal metabolic responses to protein restriction and their impact on growth, carcass composition… (More)
