IA State Univ. Report 2012: Prenatal and Postnatal Dietary n-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation Alters Buffy Coat DNA Methylation Profile in Pigs

The objective of this study was to determine the effect of maternal long chain n-3 fatty acid supplementation on the DNA methylation profile of offspring buffy coats. We demonstrated several methylated regions across the genome were influenced by maternal n-3 dietary treatment.
