Reactions known to produce the compound:

acetone degradation II (to acetoacetate) :
acetone + CO2 + ATP + 2 H2O → acetoacetate + AMP + 2 phosphate + 3 H+

isopropanol biosynthesis :
acetoacetyl-CoA + H2O → acetoacetate + coenzyme A + H+

ketogenesis , leucine degradation I , mevalonate degradation :
(S)-3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA → acetoacetate + acetyl-CoA

propylene degradation :
acetoacetate + coenzyme M + NADP+ ← 2-oxopropyl-CoM + CO2 + NADPH

tyrosine degradation I :
4-fumaryl-acetoacetate + H2O → fumarate + acetoacetate + H+

Reactions known to both consume and produce the compound:

acetoacetate degradation (to acetyl CoA) :
