Effect of nutritional programming of CAF diet plus offspring CAF diet on hypothalamus ultrastructure. a) Control, b) CAF-CAF groups. Note that CAF-CAF diet promote appearance of bigger mitochondria and mitochondria-ER interactions in CAF-CAF (d, 3000×) in compare with Control (c, 3000×). Unstacked and extremely distended endoplasmic reticulum cisternae rims extended (* asterisk) around mitochondria ( arrow head) was observed in CAF-CAF group. N, nucleus; G, Golgi apparatus
