Product information "Amplite(TM) Fluorimetric Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) Assay Kit"
Aspartate aminotransferase (AST), also called serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (GOT), is a member of transferase family. It catalyzes the reversible transfer of an alpha-amino group between aspartate and glutamate, and is an important enzyme in amino acid metabolism. AST is found in many body tissues such as liver, heart, muscle, kidneys, brain. In healthy subjects, serum AST levels are low. However, when cells are damaged, such as acute and chronic hepatitis, obstructive jaundice, carcinoma of liver, myocardial infarction, AST may leak into the blood stream and the AST levels are significantly elevated. Therefore, determination of serum AST level has great clinical and diagnostic significance. Amplite(TM) Fluorimetric Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) assay kit provides a quick and sensitive method for the measurement of AST in various biological samples. Aspartate transaminase catalyzes the reaction of aspartate and ketoglutarate to oxaloacetate and glutamate. The product L-glutamate is measured by the generation of a red fluorescent product through an enzyme coupled reaction cycle. The signal can be read by a fluorescence microplate reader at Ex/Em = 530-570 nm/590-600 nm (optimal Ex/Em = 540 nm/590 nm). With the Amplite(TM) Fluorimetric Aspartate Aminotransferase Assay Kit, we have detected as little as 2 mU/mL AST in a 100 µL reaction volume. The assay is robust, and can be readily adapted for a wide variety of applications.
