Medical Definition of Gamma-glutamyltransferase

1. An enzyme that catalyses reversibly the transfer of a glutamyl group from a glutamyl-peptide and an amino acid to a peptide and a glutamyl-amino acid. It is often elevated above normal in hepatitis and other conditions that cause chemical liver damage. Chemical name: (5-L-Glutamyl)-peptide:amino-acid 5-glutamyltransferase Registry number: EC 2.3.2.2 Acronym: GGT (12 Sep 2002)
