Effect of a juvenile hormone analogue on glutamate pyruvate transaminase activity in the bug Pyrrhocoris apterus.
Parameters assayed were thiobarbituric acid reactive substance (TBARS), serum glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (SGOT), serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase (SGPT), reduced glutathione (GSH), ascorbic acid, tocopherol, super oxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase in red blood cells (RBC) and in liver.
Morphine administration resulted in elevated serum glutamate oxaloacete transaminase and serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase activities.
This damage leads to rise in the levels of Serum Glutamic Pyruvate Transaminase (SGPT), Serum Glutamic Oxaloacetic Transaminase (SGOT), Alkaline Phosphatase (ALKP), Lactic Acid Dehydrogenase (LDH), and Creatine Phosphokinase (CPK), as shown in various human [7-9, 11] and animal [2, 4] studies.
Serum oxalacetate and pyruvate transaminase activity (SGOT & SGPT) was determined by the method of Reitman and Frankel (1957).
Serum albumin was 28 g/L (normal 33-48 g/L), serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase 54 U/L (normal 5-40 U/L), serum glutamic pyruvate transaminase 58 U/L (normal 5-40 U/L), and erythrocyte sedimentation rate 74 mm/h.
After controlling for other covariates, the multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that the significant factors related to fatty liver were male sex, obesity, hyperglycemia, hypertriglyceridemia, elevated glutamate pyruvate transaminase level, and hyperuricemia, Elevated glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase level was negatively associated with fatty liver.
The pyruvate is converted to glutamate by serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase.
Aqueous liver extract in ice-cold saline was used for the estimation of enzymes like glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (GOT), glutamate pyruvate transaminase (GPT), amylase, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and other biochemical parameters like glucose, free amino acids (FAA) and protein (total and soluble) contents.
