Acetoacetic acid (also known as 3-oxobutanoic acid or diacetic acid) is a beta-keto acid of the keto acid group. It is a weak organic acid produced in the liver under conditions of poor metabolism leading to excessive fatty acid breakdown. Increased levels are seen with 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.
