Effects of succinic and glutamic acid combination on energy metabolism in the liver of mice under conditions of hypoxia

Bull Exp Biol Med. 2009 Mar;147(3):335-8. doi: 10.1007/s10517-009-0503-5.


Treatment of mice by a combination of succinic and glutamic acids prevented the metabolic disorders in the liver under conditions of normobaric hypoxia. In addition, the activity of the mitochondrial fast metabolic cluster remained intact and lipid peroxidation was limited.
