RECALL Under what conditions are ketone bodies produced?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The conditions under which ketone bodies are produced.

Concept introduction:

Ketone bodies are substances related to acetone that is produced when an excess of acetyl-CoA is produced after beta-oxidation.

This situation arises due to a large intake of lipids and a low intake of carbohydrates. It can also occur in diabetes.

Explanation of Solution

When a fatty acid is being beta oxidized to form acetyl-CoA but the oxaloacetate is insufficient, as oxaloacetate is being drawn off for the process of gluconeogenesis, ...
