Lee Biosolutions is a producer and supplier of human liver enzyme Aspartate Aminotransferase/Glutamate Oxaloacetate Transaminase (AST/GOT) for research and clinical diagnostic assays for liver disease.

Custom preparations, technical support, bulk quantities and aliquoting available, email for more details.

AST/SGOT is found in many tissues throughout the body, including the liver, heart, muscles, kidney, and brain. If any of these organs or tissues is affected by disease or injury, AST is released into the bloodstream. This means that AST isn't as specific an indicator of liver damage as ALT (also known as alanine aminotransferase, another type of enzyme found almost entirely in the liver).
