Overview

  • Aminotransferases act as catalysts in chemical reactions in the cells, where an amino group is transferred from a donor molecule to a recipient molecule
  • An underlying disease pathology is present when aminotransferases appear in the blood stream
  • Aminotransferases serve as diagnostic tools for liver, bile ducts, muscles, skeleton, and heart
  • The tow most sensitive aminotransferases are:

Reference Range

Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) 0-23 U/l
Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) 0-19 U/l
