..., has been associated with many pre- or post-natal brain developmental delays [ 32 , 33 ]. Because it is highly nutrient responsive as well as involved in major cell signaling, O- GlcNAcylation emerges as a target of choice to explain how nutrition can impact early brain development. This is partly...
