      Background: A growing literature suggests that low birth weight increases the risk of poor health outcomes in adulthood. We tested this hypothesis among young adults living in São Paulo State, Brazil. Methods and Findings: ...
    • Novel Developmental Analyses Identify Longitudinal Patterns of Early Gut Microbiota that Affect Infant Growth 

      White, Richard A.; Bjørnholt, Jørgen V.; Baird, Donna D.; Midtvedt, Tore; Harris, Jennifer R.; Pagano, Marcello; Hide, Winston; Rudi, Knut; Moen, Birgitte; Iszatt, Nina; Peddada, Shyamal D.; Eggesbø, Merete (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      It is acknowledged that some obesity trajectories are set early in life, and that rapid weight gain in infancy is a risk factor for later development of obesity. Identifying modifiable factors associated with early rapid ...
    • Zcchc11 Uridylates Mature miRNAs to Enhance Neonatal IGF-1 Expression, Growth, and Survival 

      Jones, Matthew R.; Blahna, Matthew T.; Kozlowski, Elyse; Matsuura, Kori Y.; Ferrari, Joseph D.; Morris, Samantha A; Powers, John T; Daley, George Quentin; Quinton, Lee J.; Mizgerd, Joseph P. (Public Library of Science, 2012)
      The Zcchc11 enzyme is implicated in microRNA (miRNA) regulation. It can uridylate let-7 precursors to decrease quantities of the mature miRNA in embryonic stem cell lines, suggested to mediate stem cell maintenance. It can ...
