In fed and starved carp, Cyprinus carpio, ketone body metabolism and those metabolic and endocrine factors that are known to induce ketogenesis in starving mammals were investigated. Acetoacetate was detected in plasma and liver of both fed and starved carp. We could not detect 3-hydroxybutyrate, neither by 1H-NMR spectroscopy nor by spectrophotometric assay, in spite of low activities of hepatic 3-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase. Starvation of carp did not create metabolic conditions that would… CONTINUE READING
