Description

Abstract Text:
The nutritional status of the mother is a key factor for the development and growth of the fetus. Ourresearch seeks to understand the role played by b-carotene, the best-characterized vitamin A precursor, in maternal-fetal nutrition, not only as a precursor of vitamin A, but also as a regulator of vitamin A and lipid metabolism in the developing tissues. These studies will have a significant impact on human health as they aim at unraveling the cross-talk between micro- and macro-nutrient metabolism in maternal and developing tissues, as well as the potential modulating effects of maternal diet and disease states in a crucial stage of the lifecycle, i.e. embryonic development.

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
