TAT In The Brain, Liver, Heart, and Cancer
Tyrosine aminotransferase (TAT) also known as tyrosine transaminase, plays a role in the degradation of tyrosine in the body and may contribute to liver disease and mental retardation.
In this post, we will discuss TAT's role in disease and ways to increase or decrease this enzyme.
This converts tyrosine into 4-Hydroxyphenylpyruvic acid (4-HPPA). R
TAT Activity And Disease
TAT activity can cause Tyrosinemia type II (Richner-Hanhart syndrome, RHS) can cause mental retardation, and elevated blood tyrosine levels. R
In Tyrosinemia type II, tyrosine crystals can deposit in the cornea and results in corneal inflammation. R
3. TAT In The Heart
Inhibiting high levels of TAT may help with the heart's ability to contract. R
