General description

Increased transaminase activity alters the rate at which precursors of protein are interchanged with carbohydrate intermediates.


Transaminase has been used in a study to assess the effect of ischemic preconditioning on pathophysiologic alterations of hemodynamic, biochemical and inflammatory parameters observed during intra-abdominal hypertension. Transaminase levels have also been used in a study to investigate the use of hydrogen-1 MR spectroscopy for measurement and diagnosis of hepatic steatosis.
