Analysis Note

Protein determined by biuret

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glutamic-pyruvic transaminase (GPT) is located in most cells in the body, but is found in highest concentrations in the liver. It is used as a marker of liver disease due to the release of GPT into the blood following liver cell necrosis.
