Term Information [More information on ketone body biosynthetic process]

Accession
GO:0046951
Name
ketone body biosynthetic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
ketone body anabolism, ketone body biosynthesis, ketone body formation, ketone body synthesis
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of ketone bodies, any one of the three substances: acetoacetate, D-3-hydroxybutyrate (beta-hydroxybutyrate) or acetone. Biosynthesis involves the formation of hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA, which is cleaved to acetate and acetyl-CoA. Source: ISBN:0198506732
