Abstract

Vogt et al. demonstrate that, in mice, maternal high-fat feeding during lactation is sufficient to program the offspring for impaired energy and glucose homeostasis throughout their lifetime. They reveal that the resulting abnormal insulin signaling in the offspring interferes with the formation of hypothalamic neural circuits that contribute to metabolic status.
