KETONE BODIES METABOLIC PATHWAY (PW:0000069)

View Ontology Report

Description

The ketone bodies metabolic pathway is used to convert acetyl-CoA formed in the liver into "ketone bodies": acetone, and more importantly acetoacetate and 3-hydroxybutyrate, which are transported in the blood to extrahepatic tissues where they are converted to acetyl-CoA and oxidized via the citrate cycle pathway for energy. The brain, which usually uses glucose for energy, can utilize ketone bodies under starvation conditions, when glucose is not available. When acetyl-CoA is not being metaboli
