MaxDiscovery™ Aspartate Transaminase (AST) Color Endpoint Assay Kit

Product Description
The MaxDiscovery™ Aspartate Transaminase (AST) Color Endpoint Assay Kit is a plate-based colorimetric enzymatic assay for the determination of the aspartate transaminase enzyme in serum samples. Aspartate transaminase (AST) also known as aspartate aminotransferase or (sGOT) is a metabolic enzyme expressed primarily in the liver. Elevation of AST levels is an indication of liver damage and has been associated with liver injury. AST levels are monitored routinely in patients with liver diseases. AST is also a very useful tool for preclinical investigation of experimental drug formulations and AST levels are commonly used to monitor and attenuate the hepatotoxic effects of experimental drugs in rodents. The MaxDiscovery™ Alanine Transaminase (AST) Color Endpoint Assay Kit uses a colored reaction scheme to detect AST enzymatic activity in serum samples. In this method aspartate and a-ketoglutarate are first converted to glutamate and oxaloacetate. The oxaloacetate then reacts with diazonium salt to form a colored product. The concentration of AST in each sample is then directly determined from the absorbance at 510 nm measured with a plate reader. Dilutions of the oxaloacetate control, included in the kit, can be used to construct a standard curve to calibrate the assay and confirm assay linearity.

Keeping Tumor Growth at Bay
Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis found a way to keep a cancerous tumor from growing by using nanoparticles of the main ingredient in common antacid tablets.
Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours
Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.
Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball
A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.
Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells
A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.
Chemical Used to Replace BPA is Potentially Toxic
This study is the first to examine the effects of BPA and BPS on brain cells and genes that control the growth and function of organs involved in reproduction.
A Better Model for Parkinson's
Scientists at EPFL solve a longstanding problem with modeling Parkinson’s disease in animals. Using newfound insights, they improve both cell and animal models for the disease, which can propel research and drug development.
Improving Delivery of Poorly Soluble Drugs Using Nanoparticles
A technology that could forever change the delivery of drugs is undergoing evaluation by the Technology Evaluation Consortium™ (TEC). Developed by researchers at Northeastern University, the technology is capable of creating nanoparticle structures that could deliver drugs into the bloodstream orally – despite the fact that they are normally poorly soluble.
Toxicity Testing With Cultured Liver Cells
Microreactor replaces animal testing.
Neural Networks Adapt to the Presence of a Toxic HIV Protein
HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) afflict approximately half of HIV infected patients.
Faster Drug Discovery?
Startup develops more cost-effective test for assessing how cells respond to chemicals.
