The aim of this study was to determine incubated placental explant AF/AFR mRNA response to hypoxia in C and H ewes at day 75, and in ewes switched from a H to a C intake (H-C) from day 50 until day 75.
H or H-C maternal dietary intakes substantially reduced (P<0.004) hypoxia-induced increases in PIGF mRNA expression compared to C (175 a= 11% in H, 157 [+ or -] 17% in H-C, and 254 [+ or -] 29% in C, where normoxic=100%) in COT.
More importantly, H or H-C intakes known to alter placental and fetal growth may act through a reduction in to the COT response to hypoxia-induced expression of P1GF.
