(Abdel-Wahhab et al., 2006) reported that the increased activities of ALT, AST and ALP have been attributed to the damaged structural integrity of the liver, because these are cytoplasmic in location and they are released into plasma as result of autolytic breakdown or cellular necrosis into circulation after cellular damage.
