Preservation of Cognitive Function by Lepidium meyenii (Maca) Is Associated with Improvement of Mitochondrial Activity and Upregulation of Autophagy-Related Proteins in Middle-Aged Mouse Cortex

Figure 7

Maca increases the protein expression of subunits of mitochondrial respiratory chain complexes in cortex of middle-aged mice. The cortex was extracted from different groups of mice and subjected to Western blot analysis of OXPHOS. Representative immunoblot images (a) and quantification of mitochondrial OXPHOS complexes I–IV (b–f) in the hippocampal extracts of mice. Values are the mean ± SD. and versus CON.
