The high level of glucose in the blood of lambs from the traditional, traditional pelleted and TMR3 may be caused by altering the metabolic process including decreased use of glucose with increased oxidation of butyrate and ketogenesis (Giesecke et al.
This gene also plays a significant role in ketogenesis in the sheep rumen epithelium during development, and is up-regulated in the rumen epithelium of EW Holstein calves and Japanese Black male calves [29,16] Augmented production of VFAs influenced by the intake of solid feed during weaning may encourage ketogenesis in cattle rumen epithelial cells by the activation of HMGCS2 and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha to encourage papillary growth [29].

In addition to FFA, growth factors such as insulin growth factors 1 and 2 (IGF1 and IGF2) and fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21), a secreted protein from liver, involved in the control of glucose homeostasis, insulin sensitivity, and ketogenesis were recently found to induce the expression of genes encoding mitochondrial UCP2, UCP3, and superoxide dismutase-2 (SOD2) involved in antioxidative pathways in cardiomyocytes in culture preventing inflammation and hypertrophic process [53].
