Marsupial mothers regulate the composition of their milk so that it is optimal for the development stage of their young. New research published in BioMed Central's open access journal Epigenetics & Chromatin shows that, similar to the human placenta, which regulates embryonic growth and development, insulin appears to be imprinted in the marsupial mammary gland. Insulin is well known as the hormone which regulates blood sugar levels but it also essential for proper functioning of the...

The reasons for this failure have been perplexing, but researchers now report that they have been able to successfully accomplish...
