  1. Age-matched B6 and BTBR mice were sacrificed following 10–14 days of either chow or ketogenic feeding. All characteristics were assessed prior to sacrifice. Data are mean ± SEM (B6-chow, B6-ketogenic, BTBR-chow, and BTBR-ketogenic; n = 11, 10, 15, and 10, respectively). p < 0.01 if superscripts do not share a letter (a, b, and c)
