Regulated pathways in liver tissue between ontogenetic stages and diets. Listed pathways between AP stages (white boxes) indicate the appropriate ontogenetic development, which does not take place in the LP offspring (black boxes) at the corresponding developmental period. Pathways between the LP stages indicate processes and metabolic regulation, which occur in the LP offspring but not in the AP offspring in the corresponding developmental period. The differences in gene regulation dependent on diet and ontogenetic stage indicate fetal programming in terms of developmental and metabolic disorders (arrows between boxes show direction of the comparison; small arrows indicate up and down regulation, respectively; PLK, Polo-like kinase; VEGF, Vascular endothelial growth factor, mTOR, mammalian target of rapamycin; AMPK, AMP-activated protein kinase; RhoA, Ras homolog gene family, member A; Rac, Ras-related C3 botulinum toxin substrate; FA, Fatty acid)
