In Abcam's Glutamic Oxaloacetic Transaminase Activity Assay Kit an amino group is transferred of from aspartate to alpha-ketoglutarate. The products of this reversible transamination reaction are oxaloacetate and glutamate. The glutamate is detected in a reaction that concomitantly converts a nearly colorless probe to color (λmax = 450 nm). The kit provides a rapid, simple, sensitive and reliable test suitable as a high throughput activity assay of GOT with a detection limit of 10 mU per well.

Glutamate-oxaloacetate transaminase (GOT), also known as Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) is a transaminase (EC 184.108.40.206) similar to the more liver specific alanine transaminase (ALT). Although commonly included clinically as part of a diagnostic liver function test, GOT has a broader clinical utility since it may also be elevated in diseases affecting other organs, such as the heart or muscles in myocardial infarction, also in acute pancreatitis, acute hemolytic anemia, severe burns, acute renal disease, musculoskeletal diseases and trauma. It catalyzes the reaction: Aspartate + alpha-Ketoglutarate = Oxaloacetate + Glutamate Diagnostically, it is almost always measured in units/liter (U/L).
