Understanding GGT Reagent

GGT Reagent is essential in diagnosing and treating liver diseases like alcoholic cirrhosis and liver tumors. Elevated levels of gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT or GGTP) indicate liver issues, making it a crucial marker for various conditions.

Compared to other liver enzymes like alkaline phosphatase, GGT is more sensitive in detecting liver problems such as obstructive jaundice and cholangitis. It rises earlier and to higher levels, making it a reliable indicator.

While GGT elevation is common in liver diseases like hepatitis, it can also occur in conditions like chronic alcoholism, diabetes, and certain neurological disorders. However, normal GGT levels suggest skeletal rather than liver issues.

Methodology

The GGT test follows the Szasz procedure, which involves the transfer of a gamma-glutamyl group. This transfer leads to the formation of 5-amino-2-nitrobenzoate, causing a change in absorbance at 410/480 nm. This change directly reflects the GGT activity in the sample.
