Aspartate aminotransferase (AST), also known as Glutamate-oxaloacetate transaminase (GOT) is a

transaminase (EC similar to the more liver specific alanine transaminase (ALT). Although commonly

included clinically as part of a diagnostic liver function test, AST has a broader clinical utility since it may

also be elevated in diseases affecting other organs, such as the heart or muscles in myocardial infarction,

also in acute pancreatitis, acute hemolytic anemia, severe burns, acute renal disease, musculoskeletal

diseases and trauma. It catalyzes the reaction.


Aspartate + α-ketoglutarate ⇔ Oxaloacetate + Glutamate.


Diagnostically, it is almost always measured in units/liter (U/L). In AST Assay Kit, an amino group is

transferred of from aspartate to α-ketoglutarate. The products of this reversible transamination reaction are

oxaloacetate and glutamate. The glutamate is detected in a reaction that concomitantly converts a nearly

colorless probe to color (λmax = 450 nm). The kit provides a rapid, simple, sensitive and reliable test suitable

as a high throughput activity assay of AST with a detection limit of 10 mU per well.
