Aspartate-Transaminase-ASTAspartate-Transaminase-AST

Aspartate transaminase (AST) or aspartate aminotransferase, also known as AspAT/ASAT/AAT or serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT), is a pyridoxal phosphate (PLP)-dependent transaminase enzyme which catalyzes the reversible transfer of an α-amino group between aspartate and glutamate.It an important enzyme in amino acid metabolism.This enzyme is…
