Similarly, ketone bodies
accumulate in proportion to the keto-acids.
TFP stand for "trifunctional protein," and individuals with this kind of deficiency have an accumulation of long-chain fatty acids and are unable to make ketone bodies
Bougneres et al (23) have shown that both formation and metabolism of ketone bodies
are active processes in the newborn.
In a temperate freshwater turtle, Chrysemis picta bellii, heart mitochondria oxidize ketone bodies
at high rates in a manner similar to pyruvate (Almeida-Val et al.
Animals of the Group V showed moderate degrees of bacteriuria and the presence of ketone bodies
in 5 rats, paying attention about the glucose metabolism deficiency provoking the acetone accumulation in the liver, forming "ketone bodies
