Definition:The amount of enzymatic activity of glutamic-pyruvate transaminase enzyme, commonly known as alanine transaminase or alanine aminotransferase (ALT), enzyme in a specified sample of blood. ALT catalyzes the reversible transamination between alanine and 2-oxoglutarate to generate pyruvate and glutamate. Blood ALT level is used as an enzymatic marker for liver disease or damage.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: blood ALT activity level;   blood GPT activity level;   blood alanine transaminase activity level;   blood glutamic-pyruvate transaminase activity level
