    ..These findings suggested that acetate generation in liver mitochondria is a side reaction of this known enzyme, 3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase, and this enzyme may regulate its activities depending on each substrate level. ..

    ..From these results, it is suggested that DEHP-treatment increased fatty acid oxidation and acetate formation in liver and testes, and that acetate utilization was increased in peripheral tissues such as the heart. ..
