The ketogenic diet increases mitochondrial glutathione levels.
"Together, the results demonstrate that the KD up-regulates GSH biosynthesis, enhances mitochondrial antioxidant status, and protects mtDNA from oxidant-induced damage."
I also found this study recently which was interesting.....
Glutathionylation acts as a control switch for uncoupling proteins UCP2 and UCP3.
The two are related it seems, i think it presents a novel explanation for uncoupling protein increase on a ketogenic diet.
