6873-4Beta hydroxybutyrate [Moles/volume] in Serum or PlasmaActive

Part Description

LP15436-6   Beta hydroxybutyrate
Increases in beta-hydroxybutyrate are due to excessive fatty acid oxidation. Elevated levels are seen in gluconeogenesis, PHD complex deficiency, respiratory chain defects, IVA, PA, MMA, multiple carboxylase deficiency, 3-methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase deficiency, glyceroluria, MSUD, GA I, MAD deficiency, Beta-ketothiolase deficiencies, 2-amino/2-ketoadipic acidemia,mitochondrial SCHAD,and fatty acids oxidation deficiency.
