Role of fetal programming and epigenetic regulation on the development of endocrine and metabolic alterations

During development of the embryo and fetus, important physiological parameters can be reset by environmental events—and of utmost importance, the resetting can endure into adulthood. Fetal programming can be altered by quite subtle changes due, for example, to altered nutrition or maternal stress that occur during development. There are multiple physiological and molecular mechanisms underlying fetal and developmental programming of adult diseases such as mitochondria dysfunction, epigenetics, and structural changes of important organs like the kidney.
