alanine transferase

an intracellular enzyme in amino acid and carbohydrate metabolism found in high concentration in brain, liver, and muscle. An increased level indicates necrosis or disease in these tissues. See also alanine aminotransferase.

Aspartate transferase and alanine transferase were determined by the methods of Reitman and Frankel (1957).
Alanine transferase, aspartate trasnferrase, alkaline phosphatase and gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase levels were 946, 1047, 396 and 203 U/L, respectively.
An 80-year old lady was referred to a gastroenterology clinic in August 2009 with deranged liver function tests; alkaline phosphatase 180 IU/L (35-120), alanine transferase 147 IU/L (<40), gamma glutamyl transferase 384 IU/L (<45) and globulins 45 g/L (20-35).
Patients in the teriflunomide group experienced more nausea, diarrhea, increases in alanine transferase, and hair thinning than did those in the placebo group, but these effects were mild.

At the end of therapy, normalization of alanine transferase occurred in 14/33 treated patients (42.
The most common grade 3-4 biochemical abnormalities were alanine transferase elevation (13%), bilirubin (25%), hypophosphatemia (32%), lipase elevation (44%), and hyperglycemia (33%), Dr.
As a result, in mice administered the anti-CXCL10 neutralizing antibody the serum alanine transferase (ALT3) level was significantly lower, and histologically too the area of necrotized hepatic cells was strikingly reduced.
Serum alanine transferase (ALT) level was 750 U/L, serum aspartate transferase (AST) 445 U/L, serum alkaline phosphatase (ALP) 395 U/L, serum [gamma]-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT) 289 U/L and total bilirubin concentration was 3.
