Arginase is highly active in the liver and muscle. When the liver and muscle are damaged, it is easy to escape from the cells into the blood. The arginase assay has certain value for the diagnosis of liver disease and heart disease. Arginase is not a liver function sensitive test, because the activity of the enzyme appears in the liver disease after the enzymes such as ALT and GGT.

Basic Information

Specialist classification: cardiovascular examination classification: biochemical examination

Applicable gender: whether men and women apply fasting: fasting

Tips: Before the examination, the diet is light and alcohol is prohibited. Check for an empty stomach in the morning. Normal value

Enzyme rate method (37 ° C) 0 ~ 5U / L.

Clinical significance

1, elevated in acute myocardial infarction, viral myocarditis, viral hepatitis and toxic hepatitis, cirrhosis, early liver cancer, fatty liver, megaloblastic anemia, thalassemia major.

2. Reduce the amount of ammonia found in arginine.

High results may be diseases: myocardial infarction, cirrhosis, viral hepatitis, fatty liver, nutritional megaloblastic anemia, thalassemia considerations

1. Arginase is not a sensitive test for liver function. Because of the increased activity of the enzyme in liver disease, it occurs after enzymes such as ALT and GGT.

2. The determination of arginase is also performed by fluorescence.

Inspection process

Immediately after venous blood collection, the test was performed by the enzyme rate method.

Not suitable for the crowd

no.

Adverse reactions and risks

Symptoms of fainting such as dizziness, vertigo, fatigue, etc. after blood draw.
