Triacetin and calcium acetate dose/ mouse
Figure 5. Effect of equimolar GTA and calcium acetate (CA) on acetate levels in the liver and brain. Mice (20-21day old) were fed (26.5 mmol/kg) of either GTA or CA and acetate levels were determined in tissues 1hr following administration. Values are means ± SD of samples from 3-5 animals per group. GTA administration increased brain and liver acetate levels significantly more than calcium acetate administration (p<0.01). Statistical analysis was carried out using Student's t test.
