- HMDB0001659 (Acetone)
- Ketone Body Metabolism
- the first two are synthesized from acetyl-coa, in the mitochondria of liver cells; acetone is formed by spontaneous decarboxylation of acetoacetate. ketone body synthesis (ketogenesis) in liver is effectively irreversible because the enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of acetoacetate to acetoacetyl-coa is not present in liver cells.
