- ... Alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG), a key intermediate in the Krebs cycle and metabolism of amino acids, is one of dietary supplements studied actively during last decade. In this work, we examined the ability of dietary AKG to prevent age-related functional decline in D. melanogaster. For that, some metabolic processes and physiological functions, such as climbing activity and cold resistance, were studie ...
