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 plasma. ALT catalyzes the reversible transamination between alanine and 2-oxoglutarate to generate pyruvate and glutamate. Plasma ALT activity level is used as an enzymatic marker for liver disease or damage.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: plasma alanine transaminase activity level;   plasma glutamic-pyruvate transaminase activity level
 related_synonym: plasma ALT activity level;   plasma GPT activity level
