Aminopeptidases in the serum and urine of patients with hyperthyroidism

Abstract

In patients with hyperthyroidism the serum activities of the leucine aminopeptidase (LAP) and the alanine aminopeptidase (AAP) as well as the alanine aminopeptidase excretion in the urine were determined. A significantly increased activity of the leucine aminopeptidase in the serum and an increased excretion of alanine aminopeptidase in the urine were found. The AAP in the serum did not show a significant increase of activity. On account of the changes in the serum and in the urine before and during therapy a low-grade participation of the hepatobiliary and renal systems which are clinically not uppermost is to be assumed. Increased excretion of AAP and hyperthyroidism coincide nearly without exception in out patients. Correlation-statistical investigations make it probable to regard the increased excretion of AAP in the urine as an indirect parameter of the peripheral metabolism in hyperthyroidism.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
