Abstract: We study some basic properties of the Gelfand-Kirillov transcendence degree and compute the transcendence degree of various infinite-dimensional division algebras including quotient division algebras of quantized algebras related to quantum groups, 3-dimensional Artin-Schelter regular algebras and the 4-dimensional Sklyanin algebra.
