STTM 8.0 ALT & AST

The STTM 8.0 ALT & AST panel contains 2 tests with 2 biomarkers.

Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT)  and Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST)

The following is a list of what is included in the item above. Click the test(s) below to view what biomarkers are measured along with an explanation of what the biomarker is measuring.

Alt

Alanine transaminase (ALT) is an enzyme found in the highest amounts in the liver. Injury to the liver results in release of the substance into the blood.

Also known as: Aspartate Aminotransferase AST, AST, SGOT

AST

AST (aspartate aminotransferase) is an enzyme found in high amounts in liver, heart, and muscle cells. It is also found in lesser amounts in other tissues.
