Sample text

Five isoenzymes of LDH are present in serum, and are readily separated by various electrophoretic techniques. The slowest migrating band predominates in the liver. This test is not as sensitive as aminotransferase tests in the detection of liver disease and has poor diagnostic specificity, even when isoenzyme analysis is used. The LDH test is more useful as a marker of myocardial infarction and hemolysis. Marked elevations in serum LDH are sometimes seen in patients with acute liver failure due to ischemia or to infiltration of the liver with tumors such as melanoma or small cell carcinoma of the lung.

Elevated serum aminotransferase values are not specific for hepatobiliary disorders. They are also found in patients with severe cardiac and skeletal muscle damage. AST level is more often increased in patients with myocardial infarction than ALT, and is undoubtedly of cardiac origin. Marked increases in AST and ALT (>5000 IU/L) in patients with severe cardiac disease likely represent hepatic ischemia with centrilobular (zone 3) necrosis. 1 ␮kat/L) but have been reported to be much higher [23].

A brief description of some of these enzyme tests follows. Glutamate dehydrogenase Glutamate dehydrogenase, a mitochondrial enzyme, is present primarily in the liver, heart, muscle, and kidneys. In the liver, it is present in its highest concentration in the centrilobular (zone 3) hepatocytes. Because of this location and the fact that the level is particularly elevated after acute right-sided heart failure, serum glutamate dehy- drogenase was investigated as a specific marker for liver disorders that primarily affect centrilobular hepatocytes, such as alcoholic hepatitis.
