Publication date: Available online 6 November 2019Source: NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Guo-Qing Chang, Olga Karatayev, Boorgu Devi Sai Sri Kavya, Sarah F. LeibowitzAbstractMaternal consumption of ethanol during pregnancy is known to increase the offspring’s risk for developing alcohol use disorders and associated behavioral disturbances. Studies in adolescent and adult animals suggest the involvement of neuroimmune and neurochemical systems in the brain that control these behaviors. To understand the origin of these effects during early developmental stages, we examined in the embryo and neonate the effects of maternal int...

This study found that periconceptional alcohol exposure in rats resulted in reduced nephron endowment in offspring and female but not male offspring having a higher urine flow. Changes in expression and cellular localization of AQP2 likely underpin this disturbance in water homeostasis and highlights the need for alcohol to be avoided in early pregnancy. AbstractMaternal alcohol consumption can impair renal development and program kidney dysfunction in offspring. Given that most women who drink alcohol cease consumption upon pregnancy recognition, we aimed to investigate the effect of alcohol around the time of conception ...
