MAMMALIAN PHENOTYPE - ANNOTATIONS

The Mouse Adult Gross Anatomy Ontology and Mammalian Phenotype Ontology are downloaded weekly from the Mouse Genome Informatics databases at Jackson Laboratories (ftp://ftp.informatics.jax.org/pub/reports/index.html).

Accession:MP:0002575 term browser browse the term
Definition:greater than the normal amount of acetoacetate, 3-hydroxybutyrate (beta-hydroxybutyrate) and/or acetone in the blood, which are produced by fatty acid and carbohydrate metabolism and seen in conditions such as starvation and diabetes mellitus
Comment:Although 3-hydroxybutyrate is not a ketone, it is classed as a ketone body because it exists in equilibrium with acetoacetate.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: elevated circulating ketone body level;   hyperketonaemia;   hyperketonemia
 narrow_synonym: elevated plasma ketone body level;   elevated serum ketone body level
