In this study, we applied interleaved localized 1H-[13C]-MRS and direct 13C MRS with polarization transfer to characterize brain energy metabolism in the early development of a GCLM-KO mouse model with infusion of [2-13C]acetate. This strategy enabled to measure simultaneously the [2-13C]acetate input function, glutamate and glutamine C4 and C3 enrichment and pool size changes. Two-compartment metabolic modelling was then applied to characterize mitochondrial metabolism and glutamate/glutamine cycling and compare it to a control group.
