How do placental hormones have an effect on nutrient transfer to the fetus and how does this ultimately affect fetal gene expression?
A Coggle Diagram about Hormones
(Transport of nutrients
, released into maternal circulation
, Placental hormones are mainly secreted by the syncytiotrophoblast
, important for pregnancy establishment and maintenance, exerting autocrine and paracrine effects that regulate decidualization, placental development, angiogenesis, endometrial receptivity, embryo implantation, immunotolerance and fetal development
, major characteristics?
, molecular targets?
, function throughout pregnancy?
and regulators of their expression?
), Placenta Fxns
, support and protection
, gas exchange
, production of several hormones and other mediators
and Review: Endocrine regulation of placental phenotype
), Why do we care?
(placental role in fetal porgramming
), Placenta size vs Infant size
, Maternal High Fat Diet
, What genes are associated with hepatic lipid metabolism?
and how does circadian rhythm affect hepatic lipid metabolism?
