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