What is it about?

This is a short review linking the impacts of maternal exposure (in particular through the food) to trophoblast development and thus placental function. This is achieved through specific regulation of epigenetic marks, such as in particular DNA methylation

Why is it important?

This paper can be used as a starting point to analyze epigenetic consequences of maternal diet
