Term Information

Accession
GO:0046952
Name
ketone body catabolic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
ketolysis, ketone body breakdown, ketone body catabolism, ketone body degradation, utilization of ketone bodies
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the breakdown of ketone bodies, any one of the three substances: acetoacetate, D-3-hydroxybutyrate (beta-hydroxybutyrate) or acetone. Ketone bodies can be used as an energy source as an alternative to glucose. Utilization of ketone bodies in peripheral tissues involves conversion of acetoacetate to acetoacetyl-CoA, which is then converted to two molecules of acetyl-CoA. Source: ISBN:0198506732
