ABSTRACT


The activities of various diagnostic enzymes viz. Butryl cholinesterase (ButChE), a Amylase (a Amyl), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), creatine kinase (CK), gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) were determined in serum of 238 healthy camel of either sex and different ages. The results were analysed with respect to sex and age. The mean activities of ButChE, a Amyl, AST, ALT, LDH, CK, GGT and ALP were 111.0 ± 23.9 and 112.6 ± 28.0 U/L; 1404 ± 160.2 and 1366.8 ± 137.8 U/L; 87.4 ± 13.1 and 85.6 ±11.5 U/L; 11.2 ± 2.3 and 11.4 ± 2.3 U/L; 776.5 ± 91.9 and 767.1 ± 102.2 U/L; 87.6 ± 31.4 and 73.1 ± 27.2 U/L; 12.1 ± 4.0 and 11.6 ± 3.6 U/L; 305.2 ± 111.9 and 268.4 ± 91.2 U/L, respectively in male and female camels. Analysis of data revealed that CK and ALP activities in the serum of males were significantly higher than females.
