BACKGROUND Although aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and gamma-glutamyltransferase (gamma GT) enzymes are widely used as markers for liver disorders, the ubiquitous enzyme butyrylcholinesterase (BChE), synthesized in liver is also used as marker in the assessment of liver pathophysiology. This BChE enzyme in addition to its esterase activity has yet another enzymatic function designated as aryl acylamidase (AAA) activity. It is determined in in vitro based on the hydrolysis of the synthetic… CONTINUE READING
