Mitochondrial Dysfunction: Common Final Pathway in Brain Aging and Alzheimer’s Disease—Therapeutic Aspects


As a fully differentiated organ, our brain is very sensitive to cumulative oxidative damage of proteins, lipids, and DNA occurring during normal aging because of its high energy metabolism and the relative low activity of antioxidative defense mechanisms. As a major consequence, perturbations of energy metabolism including mitochondrial dysfunction… (More)
