Lab3-- review 1

Clinical chemistries (plasma proteins, etc)

Important in determining an animals state of hydration. Total Protein= (TP)
Most important plasma protein. Makes up 35-50% of total plasma protein in most animals. Albumin= (ALB)
Alpha, Beta, Gamma Important to antibody production. Globulin= (GLOB)
Precursor to fibrin. Involved in clotting. Fibrinogen=
Protein Assays: TP,ALB,GLOB,Fibrinogen
Hepatobillary assays: ALT,AST,GLDH,SDH
Hepatocyte function tests: TBIL,BA,CHOL
Enzymes asscoiated with Cholestasis: ALKp or ALP GGT
LIVER SPECIFIC! NOT a good test for large animals Alanine Aminotransferase= (ALT)
NON SPEFCIFIC LIVER DAMAGE!!!! found in RBC's Asparate aminotransferase= (AST)
Best tests for liver values on ruminants. GLDH
Present in isoenzymes in many tissues. Young animals= active bone formation. Older animals= liver ALP or ALKP
Primary sources if the liver in DOGS,HORSES & RUMINANTS. Determines obstructive liver disease. GGT
Determines cause of jaundice, elevated liver function, check the patency of bile ducts. TBIL
Sent to outside lab. picks up liver disease before jaundice occurs. helps digest lipids. BA
Primary production site in animals. used as a screening test for hypothyroidism. CHOL
