Nutrigenomics: An emerging tool in Nutrition
T Susmitha and L Vidya Sagar
Nutrigenomics is the study of genes interaction with dietary chemicals to alter the phenotype and conversely, how genes metabolize the nutrients. The results of the available experiments allow us to emphasize the importance of the influence of genetic-nutrition interactions on different physiological and metabolic processes with transcendence in animal production. The obtained information allows us to deepen in the knowledge of the genes and metabolic pathways affected by diet and the influence that the nutritional interventions can have on their regulation. On the other hand, the subsequent structural characterization of these genes and the identification of their allelic variation in animals present future implications of great interest both for genetic improvement of the breeds and for the understanding of the variability in the individual response to nutritional factors. This in turn may have future implications for the formulation of animal diets.
