Gamma glutamyltransferase (GGT) by method of Rosalki and Tarlo using spectrophotometer standardizing the PNA (Para Nitro Aniline)
Almost constant trend was observed in case of all haemoparasites that result in considerable increase in ALP, ALT, AST and GGT. On the other hand, total protein and albumin was decreased due to infection of all blood parasites (Table III).
"As is often the case, too much of a good thing can be harmful," Hanigan said of GGT. "We were able to solve the structure of GGT at the molecular level, which helps us to understand how it contributes to specific diseases and provides insight into how to block its activity."
An infant with cholestasis, acholic stool and high GGT levels.
Table 1 and figure 1 demonstrate the high significant elevations of AST, ALT and GGT together with the non-significant change in ALP.
Increased serum ALT, GGT and decreased AST/ ALT levels are involved in hepatic steatosis or visceral obesity.
Serum GGT, alanine aminotransferase (ALT), and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) were measured using an enzymatic colorimetric test with a Hitachi 7600 analyzer (Hitachi, Tokyo, Japan).
Specifically, for ALT, AST, GGT, ALP, LDH, and CK, fresh frozen serum pools at 2 different concentrations were analyzed.
The activity of ALP increases by 30.8%, GGT by 4.8%, and amylase by 57.0% is observably present.
GGT is a very sensitive marker for continuous heavy drinking, (van Beek et al., 2014) there is variability in the response of GGT to alcohol use, which may result from genetic differences between individuals.
Using data from the general population of northern Italy, the fatty liver index (FLI), an algorithm based on triglyceride (TG) concentration, gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) level, body mass index (BMI), and waist circumference (WC), was developed to predict the risk of fatty liver disease in the general population [4].
All the patients were clinically evaluated and underwent biochemical [ALT (alanine aminotransferase), AST (aspartate aminotransferase), and GGT (gamma-glutamyl transferase)], serological (HBsAg (HBV surface antigen), HBeAg (HBV e antigen), anti-HBeAg, anti-HBc (IgM and IgG against HBcAg), and anti-HCV], and virological (HBV DNA, HCV RNA, and genotyping) tests, ultrasound, endoscopy, and liver biopsy.
