Muhlhausler, B. S. and Roberts, C. T. and McFarlane, J. R. and Kauter, K. G. and McMillen, I. C. (2002) Leptin is a signal of fetal adiposity in pregnant ewes fed at or above maintenance energy requirements. In: 49th Annual Meeting Society for Gynecologic Investigation , 20-23 Mar 2002, Los Angeles, CA. United States.Full text not available from this repository.
In adults, circulating leptin concentrations are dependent on body fat content and on current nutritional status. However, the relationships among maternal nutrient intake, fetal adiposity, and circulating leptin concentrations before birth are unknown. We investigated the effects of an increase in nutrient intake in the pregnant ewe on fetal adiposity and plasma leptin concentrations during late gestation.
