Pyruvate degradation is an important step for oxidative phosphorylation. We studied brains of murine embryos devoid of mitochondrial pyruvate carrier 1 (MPC1) using 1H MRS. We demonstrates that after the embryonic energy shift, lactate accumulation can explain embryonic lethality in embryo devoid of MPC1.
