The samples were then analyzed to determine serum alanine transaminase (ALT), aspartate transaminase (AST) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) with the help of an automated biochemical auto-analyzer (HITACHI-917).
The typical presentation of a bird infected with C psittaci can include conjunctivitis, nasal and ocular discharge, biliverdinuria, a leukocytosis with concurrent heterophilia and monocytosis, elevation of aspartate transaminase, lactate dehydrogenase, creatine phosphokinase, and bile acids.
Mean aspartate transaminase levels were markedly increased in ALD (158.
On day 45, while M75 had higher aspartate transaminase level than M50, gamma- glutamyl transpeptidase level in this group were higher than both control and M50 (pless than 0.
Methods: Plasma aspartate transaminase (ALT), aspartate transaminase (AST), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), liver glutathione (GSH), glutathione transferase (GST), glutathione peroxidase (GPx), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) levels were determined after mice were sacrificed.
