What is AST assay used for?

The aminotransferases are a group of enzymes that catalyse the inter conversions of amino acids and a‑oxoacids by transfer of amino groups. AST (aspartate aminotransferase or glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase) has been found in the cytoplasm and the mitochondria of cells. In cases of mild tissue damage e.g. liver the predominant form of serum AST is that from the cytoplasm, with a smaller amount coming from the mitochondria. Severe tissue damage will result in more mitochondrial enzyme being released.

Elevated levels of AST can signal myocardial infarction, hepatic disease, muscular dystrophy and organ damage.
