Succinyl-CoA acetoacetate transferase deficiency

Common Name(s)

Succinyl-CoA acetoacetate transferase deficiency

Ketone bodies are major vectors of energy transfer from the liver to extrahepatic tissues and are the main source of lipid-derived energy for the brain. {8:Mitchell et al. (1995)} reviewed medical aspects of ketone body metabolism, including the differential diagnosis of abnormalities. As the first step of ketone body utilization, succinyl-CoA:3-oxoacid CoA transferase (SCOT, or OXCT1; {EC 2.8.3.5}) catalyzes the reversible transfer of CoA from succinyl-CoA to acetoacetate.
