Students in the animal sciences course, Lactation Biology Lab, recently published two articles related to maternal methyl nutrition and health of offspring. Chung Park, professor of animal sciences, directs the students.
The article, Lipotropes (methyl nutrients) inhibit growth of feline lymphoma in vitro, published in Research in Veterinary Science, discusses the most common tumor diagnosed in felines and provides a study on inhibitors of the lymphoma. The second article, Maternal high methyl diet suppresses mammary carcinogenesis in female rate offspring, published in Carcinogenesis, investigates the long-term effects of maternal dietary high-dose lipotropes on the development and progression of mammary tumors in rat offspring using two separate experiments.
NDSU is student focused and committed to its land-grant mission.
