  1. Longevity Determined by Paternal Ancestors' Nutrition During Their Slow Growth Period.LarsOlov Bygren, Gunnar Kaati & Sören Edvinsson - 2001 - Acta Biotheoretica 49 (1):53-59.
    Social circumstances often impinge on later generations in a socio-economic manner, giving children an uneven start in life. Overfeeding and overeating might not be an exception. The pathways might be complex but one direct mechanism could be genomic imprinting and loss of imprinting. An intergenerational "feedforward" control loop has been proposed, that links grandparental nutrition with the grandchild's growth. The mechanism has been speculated to be a specific response, e.g. to their nutritional state, directly modifying the setting of the gametic (...)
