Sex differences in the effect of gestational alcohol exposure on hippocampal gene expression

Takeaway

  • RNA sequencing of fetal hippocampal tissue in a rat model of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) reveals sex differences in the effect of gestational alcohol exposure on gene expression.

Why this matters ?

  • Understanding sex-based differences in the effect of gestational alcohol exposure on hippocampal molecular pathways is fundamental for the development of novel therapeutic strategies that account for these differences.
