The relationship of maternal amino acids, proteins, and certain other factors to fetal development (weight and cranial volume at birth and mental and motor scores at 8 months of age) was investigated in 129 gravidas. Maternal prepregnancy weight was significantly related to birth weight and cranial volume in the newborn. Among amino acids, glycine, lysine, and total amino acids were positively correlated with birth weight, whereas valine and threonine showed a negative correlation. Cranial… Expand
