aspartate aminotransferase (AST)
units per liter (U/L)
Aspartate transaminase (AST) catalyzes the reversible transfer of an a-amino
group between aspartate and glutamate and, as such, is an important enzyme in
amino acid metabolism. AST is found in the liver, heart, skeletal muscle,
kidneys, brain, and red bl
