  • abnormalities
  • The diagnosis of fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) is based on findings in the following 3 areas: (1) characteristic facial anomalies (see image below), (2) growth retardation (intrauterine growth restriction and failure to have catch-up growth), and (3) CNS involvement (cognitive impairment, learning disabilities, or behavioral abnormalities).

  • Metabolism
  • The pregnant rat fed a low-protein diet is one of several well-established animal models in which poor fetal growth leads to adverse effects on blood pressure, glucose metabolism, and insulin action in adult life (Langley-Evans et al. (biomedcentral.com)
  • 2007 ). This interaction suggests that key pathways and molecules associated with the programming of insulin action should only be sensitive to the protein content of the maternal diet in the fetuses of dams fed the diets prepared with soya oil, whereas homeostatic changes associated with protein and amino acid metabolism should be present in both soya and corn oil groups.

  • Moreover, in-vivo liver repopulation assays demonstrated that human CDCP1 + CD90 + CD66 - HpSCs repopulated over 90% of the mouse liver and differentiated into functional hepatocytes with drug metabolism activity. (biomedcentral.com)
  • plasma
  • Dexamethasone (1 mg/kg, i.p.) administered either 1 hr before or 1 hr after E. coli lipopolysaccharide (LPS, 4 mg/kg, i.p.) in conscious rats inhibited the subsequent (4 hrs) rise in plasma cytokine (interleukin [IL]-1β, tumour necrosis factor [TNF]-α), nitrate/nitrite (NO × ), soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1) concentration and lung/liver myeloperoxidase activity indicative of an anti-inflammatory effect. (wiley.com)
  • Dexamethasone also reduced the LPS-evoked rise in plasma hydrogen sulphide (H 2 S) concentration, liver H 2 S synthesizing activity and expression of cystathionine γ lyase (CSE) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). (wiley.com)
  • mechanisms
  • The mechanisms by which maternal protein deficiency programs insulin action in the offspring are poorly understood. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The mechanisms that underlie this phenomenon of fetal programming are unknown. (hud.ac.uk)
  • These various effects are achieved by a variety of mechanisms most notably switching off transcription of pro-inflammatory molecules due to inhibition of transduction via nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) and activator protein (AP-1) and also by switching on gene expression for anti-inflammatory mediators such as annexin-1, interleukin (IL)-10 and IκBα (inhibitor of NF-κB) [ 5, 6 ].

  • Study coauthor Heidi Parker says this gene may turn on growth mechanisms at the wrong time during foetal development, stunting the growth of long bones in the leg and making them curvy. (discovermagazine.com)
  • transplantation
  • Furthermore, 8 weeks after transplantation in the liver of newborn immunodeficient mice, both nondifferentiated and differentiated FL-MSCs gave rise to foci of hepatocytes, showing that they are able to further differentiate in vivo into mature hepatocytes. (hindawi.com)
  • characteristic
  • Children with fetal alcohol syndrome disorder may have clinically significant CNS involvement but few or no characteristic physical features. (medscape.com)
  • These inherited changes to hemoglobin or other characteristic proteins, which are critical and rather invariant features of mammalian biochemistry, usually cause some kind of inherited disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • regeneration
  • Liver regeneration can usually be achieved by proliferation of the differentiated hepatocytes, without involvement of the stem/progenitor cell compartment. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Since these cells play an import role in regenerative medicine, the precise characterization that determines specific markers used to isolate these cells as well as whether they contribute to liver regeneration still remain to be shown. (biomedcentral.com)
  • albumin
  • in vivo it appears to influence the degree of steroid binding to albumin rather than acting primarily as a high affinity saturable binding protein. (uea.ac.uk)
  • This 70-kDa secretory protein is a member of the albumin gene family. (fishersci.co.uk)
  • differentiate
  • We show that FL-MSCs, cultured in conditions favoring the generation of hepatocyte-like cells from mesenchymal cells of human adult livers [ 9 ], could also differentiate into functional hepatocyte-like cells. (hindawi.com)
  • human
  • Aim of the present study was to explore the presence of SerpinB3 in hepatic progenitor cells in human livers and in a mouse model of liver stem/progenitor cell activation. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The presence of SerpinB3 in the progenitor cell compartment was detected in sorted human foetal and adult epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) positive liver cells. (biomedcentral.com)
  • By immunohistochemistry SerpinB3 was found in human cirrhotic livers in portal areas with progenitor cell activation showing ductular proliferation. (biomedcentral.com)
  • In line with the search of effective stem cell population that would progress liver cell therapy and because the rate and differentiation potential of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) decreases with age, the current study investigates the hepatogenic differentiation potential of human fetal liver MSCs (FL-MSCs). (hindawi.com)
  • Thereafter, we explored their hepatocytic differentiation potential using the hepatogenic protocol applied for adult human liver mesenchymal cells. (hindawi.com)
  • In particular, it has been shown that human fetal liver (FL) MSCs display specific characteristics as compared to those of BM, that is, lesser immune suppressive capacity, larger expansion potential, longer telomeres, and higher telomerase activity [ 4 - 6 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • In this study, human HpSCs were isolated from human primary fetal liver cells (FLCs) by flow cytometry using CDCP1, CD90, and CD66 antibodies. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Indeed, many researchers have isolated, purified, and characterized HpSCs from human and rodent livers using flow cytometry. (biomedcentral.com)
