ALT is often measured in conjunction with AST to determine whether the source of the AST is the liver or the heart. ALT is normally not elevated in cases of myocardial infarction, i.e., a normal ALT, in conjunction with an elevated AST, tends to suggest cardiac disease. However, slight elevations of ALT may occur if an infarct destroys a very large volume of heart muscle.

These disorders result in the accumulation/ deficiency of one or more amino acids in the body, which causes clinical signs and symptoms of the particular amino acid disorder. This assay aids evaluation of patients with possible inborn errors of metabolism. It may, also, be used for evaluation of endocrine disorders, liver diseases, muscle diseases, neoplastic diseases, neurological disorders, nutritional disturbances, renal failure, and burns.

Other causes of elevated serum amylase are inflammation of salivary glands (mumps), biliary tract disease and bowel obstruction. Elevated serum amylase can also be seen with drugs (e.g., morphine)which constrict the pancreatic duct sphinter preventing excretion of amylase into the intestine.
