The supernatant was used for estimating aspartate transaminase (AST), alanine transaminase (ALT) (Wooten, 1964), acid phosphatase (ACP) and alkaline phosphatase (ALK) (Garen and Levinthal, 1960).
Alanine transaminase (ALT), aspartate transaminase (AST) (Reitman and Frankel, 1957), alkaline phosphatase (ALP) (King, 1965a), 5' nucleotidase (5'ND) (Luly et al.
Serum and liver alkaline phosphatase, aspartate transaminase (AST) and alanine transaminase (ALT) activities in rabbits administered sertraline, clozapine, amytriptyline and imipramine were elevated and since they are serum liver derived enzymes , data of this study indicate administration of these drugs posed a threat and prolonged liver damage and disease (Patel and O'Gorman [31], Ebuehi and Asonye [17].
The differential diagnosis for serum alanine transaminase and serum aspartate transaminase levels in the thousands includes a very short list of drugs, exposure to hepatotoxins such as carbon tetrachloride, and viral hepatitis.
Serum alanine transaminase, aspartate aminotransferase, alkaline phosphatase, and bilirubin levels were moderately elevated.
Treated animals also exhibited significantly lower viral titers in serum, improved weight gain, and decreased liver damage as measured by lower levels of alanine transaminase and aspartate transaminase.

3 mg/dL; alkaline phosphatase, 440 units/L; aspartate transaminase, 686 units/L; and alanine transaminase, 589 units/L.
The levels of blood urea nitrogen (BUN), serum creatinine, thyroid-stimulating hormone, aspartate transaminase, alanine transaminase, alkaline phosphatase, creatine kinase (CK), amylase, and bilirubin along with the leukocyte count were normal.
In addition, the liver enzymes alanine transaminase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) were elevated in the MK-0893/metformin group, and total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol were increased from baseline with MK-0893 /sitagliptin, relative to reductions with MK-0893 / metformin and sitagliptin/metformin, he reported.
Concentrations of serum sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, phosphorus, glucose, urea, creatinine, uric acid, total bilirubin, direct bilirubin, total protein, albumin, cholesterol, triglyceride, aspartate transaminase, alanine transaminase, alkaline phosphatase, [gamma]-glutamyltransferase, and amylase were determined with a Hitachi 911 analyzer (Hitachi Ltd, Tokyo, Japan).
