The production of ketone bodies by the isolated perfused rat liver has been measured by the dilution of the specific activity of tracer amounts of beta-hydroxy[3-14C]butyrate and by accumulation in the perfusate. The latter method has been found to underestimate ketogenesis by 12 to 44% because it does not take into account acetoacetate utilization by the liver. Incorporation of ketone bodies into fatty acids and 3-beta-hydroxysterols was compared to total lipid synthesis measured by… CONTINUE READING
