[Transgenerational consequences of acute antenatal stress in pregnant rats].

[Article in Russian]


The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of acute hypobaric hypoxia in early organogenesis on three following generations including pregnant females (FO) and two generations of their posterity (F1 and F2). Animals of all generations mentioned above demonstrated marked changes in motor and exploratory activity as well as in anxiety level while the litter of F1 and F2 generations showed also changes in learning ability. Besides, acute hypobaric hypoxia interfered in maternal behavior of females of the FO and F1 generations. The revealed changes kept till pubertal period. Possible mechanisms of gestational stress influence are discussed.
