ALT

On drawings, abbr. for alternate.

alt

(character)
/awlt/ 1. The alt modifier key on many keyboards, including the IBM PC. On some keyboards and operating systems, (but not the IBM PC) the alt key sets bit 7 of the character generated.

See bucky bits.

2. The "clover" or "Command" key on a Macintosh; use of this term usually reveals that the speaker hacked PCs before coming to the Mac (see also feature key). Some Mac hackers, confusingly, reserve "alt" for the Option key (and it is so labelled on some Mac II keyboards).

3. (Obsolete PDP-10; often "ALT") An alternate name for the ASCII ESC character (Escape, ASCII 27), after the keycap labelling on some older terminals; also "altmode" (/awlt'mohd/). This character was almost never pronounced "escape" on an ITS system, in TECO or under TOPS-10, always alt, as in "Type alt alt to end a TECO command" or "alt-U onto the system" (for "log onto the [ITS] system"). This usage probably arose because alt is easier to say.

4. <messaging> One of the Usenet newsgroup hierarchies. It was founded by John Gilmore and Brian Reid. The alt hierarchy is special in that anyone can create new groups here without going though the normal voting proceduers, hence the regular appearence of new groups with names such as "alt.swedish.chef.bork.bork.bork".

Various studies in rats have indicated that exposure to malathion (parathion) significantly increases the formation of lipid per oxidation product malondialdehyde (MDA) and increases the leakage of alanine transaminase (ALT), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), urea and creatinine (Mossalam et al.

Linear regression models were fitted for In-transformed values of alanine transaminase (ALT), [gamma]-glutamyltransferase, and direct bilirubin on PFOA, PFOS, and potential confounders, and logistic regression models were used to compare deciles of PFOA or PFOS in relation to high biomarker levels.

Blood samples was drawn to determination the serum values of Aspartate Transaminase (AST), Alanine Transaminase (ALT), Uric Acid, Alkaline phosphatase (ALP), and Creatinine.
His low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) is 130 mg/dL; triglycerides, 300 mg/dL; alanine transaminase (ALT), 110 units/L; and aspartate transaminase (AST), 120 units/L.
The clinical laboratory findings at the time of admission were as follows: the serum aspartate-amino transferase level was 29 U/L, the serum alanine transaminase level was 25 U/L, the serum sodium level was 140 mmol/L, the serum potassium level was 4.

The mean alanine transaminase (344 IU/l) observed in our study was markedly higher compared to the range of mean alanine transaminase (75 to 143 IU/l) reported in previous studies (6,10).
