These results suggest that AD in tree shrews is associated with up-regulation of numerous cellular processes in the hippocampus, including glycolysis, toxin response, carbohydrate processing, cellular projections, as well as with activity of 6-phosphofructokinase and M-band.
Lactic acid production maybe increased in certain situations via alkalosis dependent activation of 6-phosphofructokinase enzyme [11, 14], and ketone bodies production may be enhanced [15].
