Environmental variation experienced early in life can result in long-term reproductive consequences. We have recently identified an important role for AMPK in the prevention of transgenerational defects following starvation of L1 stage larvae in C. elegans. Here we describe a means of analyzing these transgenerational defects following a single exposure to energy stress during early larval development. We also provide methods to quantify the histone modifications that are affected by this stress, along with the resulting reproductive defects that arise in later generations.
