Special Issue in Cells: Molecular and Clinical Advances in Understanding Early Embryo Development—Volume II
Both maternal and paternal environmental challenges and assisted reproductive technology (ART) can alter early embryo development. These molecular alterations often produce unwanted characteristics in adulthood. Included in the undesirable characteristics are metabolic syndrome, diabetes, hypertension, and other related disorders. Strikingly, these disorders may, in many cases, exhibit transgenerational expression. This special issue aims to explore current research concerning these and related environmental challenges to early embryos and their mothers and fathers. We invite submission of manuscripts concerning, but not limited to, the following key words regarding early embryo development.
We are pleased to invite you to contribute original articles, reviews, and communications, etc. We are looking forward to your contributions to this Special Issue.
Dr. Lon J. van Winkle
