Stress enzymes triggered by transient stress mediate reprioritization of developmental and homeostatic events to flexibly accomplish the next essential developmental event. This review analyzes recent studies on stress and stress enzyme function during early mammalian development and describes the diverse consequences that result from measurement, analysis of function, and management of stress and stress enzymes during development.
