Folate is interrelated metabolically to choline metabolism; both methyltetrahydrofolate and betaine derived from choline can methylate homocysteine to produce methionine 5 — 9. The breeding dams consumed the diets during mating, gestation and lactation.

World Malaria Report In goats, maternal supplementation with Se during gestation diet lactation influences the oxidative status and expression of apoptotic genes in the testes of offspring [ 17 ] mouse a mouse rat study demonstrated that low Se levels were also associated with changes in intrauterine growth and liver metabolism [ 18 ].

This study investigated the effect of a high-fat diet either supplemented with diet H, or marginally deficient in diet L, Se and folate. Pregnant female mice and their male offspring were assigned to one of four treatments: diet H during gestation, lactation and post-weaning; diet L during gestation, lactation and post-weaning; diet H during gestation and lactation but diet L fed to offspring post-weaning; or diet L during gestation and lactation followed by diet H fed to offspring post-weaning. Microarray and pathway analyses were performed using RNA from colon and liver of week-old male offspring. Gene set enrichment analysis of liver gene expression showed that diet L affected several pathways including regulation of translation protein biosynthesis, methyl group metabolism, and fatty acid metabolism; this effect was stronger when the diet was fed to mothers, rather than to offspring. No significant differences in individual gene expression were observed in colon but there were significant differences in cell cycle control pathways. Appropriate nutrition during pregnancy, in terms of both macronutrients and micronutrients, is important for normal embryonic and foetal growth. Limited maternal nutrition during this period increases neonatal mortality and reduces antioxidant enzyme expression leading to foetal brain oxidative stress and DNA damage [ 1, 2 ]. In addition, this may result in cardiovascular defects, insulin resistance, and increased body fat in adulthood. There is also evidence that both energy dense and micronutrient-poor diets have a range of effects on the metabolism of the offspring during pregnancy and in later life [ 3 ]. In rats, for example, exposure of dams to a high-fat diet induced early reproductive maturation in the offspring who also developed obesity [ 4 ] and this effect may be compounded in subsequent generations exposed to a high-fat diet. This is particularly observed in obese individuals where the prevalence of micronutrient deficiencies, such as that of the trace element selenium Se and the vitamin folate [ 6, 7, 8 ], is higher compared to normal weight individuals of the same age and sex [ 7, 9, 10 ].
