Dietary restriction was used in this study as a modulator of free radical reactions to examine the effects of age on the physico-biochemical property of synaptosomal membranes. Synaptosomal membranes were isolated from the frontal cortices of 6- and 24-month-old barrier-reared male Fischer 344 rats maintained on either an ad lib (AL) or a 40% diet restricted (DR) feeding schedule. The age-related production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) was only seen in the AL group, and dietary restriction… CONTINUE READING
