Brain Res Rev 59:293-315. 2009..The present review summarizes the neuroprotective effects of calorie restriction, of the ketogenic diet and of ketone bodies, and compares their putative mechanisms of action...
- Oxidative impairment of hippocampal long-term potentiation involves activation of protein phosphatase 2A and is prevented by ketone bodiesMarwan Maalouf
Division of Neurology, Cedars Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA
J Neurosci Res 86:3322-30. 2008..We propose that oxidative impairment of hippocampal LTP is associated with PP2A activation, and that KB prevent this impairment in part by inducing PP2A inhibition through an antioxidant mechanism...
