Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: This chapter deals with quantitative aspects of macronutrient metabolism and its regulation in maternal and conceptus tissues in vivo, emphasizing data and concepts generated or revised during the decade since publication of a similar chapter in the first edition of this book (see Bell, 1993). Recent findings on the regulation of nutrient partitioning among maternal tissues, the placenta, and fetus(es) are highlighted, as is new information on placental transport mechanisms.
