Optimal Result: 0 - 7.2 nmol/mg Creatinine.

- Alpha-ketobutyric acid results from the breakdown of threonine or methionine during glutathione production.

- Specifically, cystathionine is metabolized to alpha-ketobutyric acid and cysteine.

- a- ketobutyric acid enters the mitochondrial matrix and get converted to propionyl-CoA by the branched chain keto-acid dehydrogenase complex (BCKDHC) and enters the Krebs cycle at succinyl-CoA.

- Evaluate lactate and the branched chain keto acids

- Evaluate alpha-hydroxybutyric acid

- Associated Nutrients: Vitamin B3

- a -Ketobutyric acid is produced from cystine, along with hydrogen sulfide (H2S) as a by-product.

- a- Ketobutyric acid is reversibly converted to a- hydroxybutyric acid.
