A second hallmark of glycogen-synthase deficiency is high levels
of ketone bodies. Which of the following explains this symptom?

Place Order

A) When tissues are starved of glucose, the liver responds by
making ketone bodies

B) Beta oxidation is intact in these patients. Therefore, the
liver of these patients can still readily create the substrate of
ketone-body synthesis, acetyl-CoA, despite low levels of
pyruvate.

C) Since glucogenic intermediates, like pyruvate, are needed for
anaplerosis, Krebs intermediates are low. This leads to a buildup
of acetyl-CoA in the matrix, which facilitates ketone-body
synthesis.

D) All of the above

the answer is not B.
