Open in a separate window 1. At the same time, they maintain ion gradients for neurotransmission, the main source of said percentage Wong et al.
In this sense, in the event of needing extra energy derived, for example, an increase in synaptic activity, there is no type of energy reserve that can be used in the brain Karbowski,.
The essential energy source for neurons, in the form of adenosine triphosphate ATP, is obtained, on the one hand, from oxygen and, on the other hand, from glucose through catabolism performed in the Krebs cycle.
Glucose is used by brain gray matter ten times more than the rest of the body, while there are variations in that consumption in different regions of the brain. This could explain that, in the case of an energetic alteration in the neurons, there is a great susceptibility to neurodegeneration and a great diversity of neurodegenerative diseases that can be triggered depending on the region where this altered glucose consumption takes place Barros et al.
It produces a structural and functional imbalance of the affected part of the brain, based on mitochondrial dysfunction which ends up influencing it overall. Regarding this pathological imbalance, the proposed therapeutic alternative is to provide an energy source that is not based on glucose, such as that represented by ketone bodies KBs.
