Bovine Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) ELISA Kit
Principle of the Assay
The microtiter plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to AST. Standards or samples are then added to the appropriate microtiter plate wells with a biotin-conjugated antibody preparation specific to AST. Next, Avidin conjugated to Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to each microplate well and incubated. After the TMB substrate solution is added, only those wells that contain AST, biotin-conjugated antibody, and enzyme-conjugated Avidin will exhibit a change in color. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by the addition of sulphuric acid solution, and the color change is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450nm ± 10nm. The concentration of AST in the samples is then determined by comparing the O.D. of the samples to the standard curve.
For Use with serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants. For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Biosynthesis of L-glutamate from L-aspartate or L-cysteine. Important regulator of levels of glutamate, the major excitatory neurotransmitter of the vertebrate central nervous system. Acts as a scavenger of glutamate in brain neuroprotection. The aspartate aminotransferase activity is involved in hepatic glucose synthesis during development and in adipocyte glyceroneogenesis. Using L-cysteine as substrate, regulates levels of mercaptopyruvate, an important source of hydrogen sulfide. Mercaptopyruvate is converted into H(2)S via the action of 3-mercaptopyruvate sulfurtransferase (3MST). Hydrogen sulfide is an important synaptic modulator and neuroprotectant in the brain.

|Storage||The TMB Substrate, Wash Buffer (30X concentrate), and the Stop Solution should be stored at 4°C upon receipt, while the other items should be stored at -20°C.|
Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): 3 samples with low, middle, and high-level AST were tested 20 times on one plate, respectively.
|SENSITIVITY||The minimum detectable dose was 0.055ng/mL.|
|SPECIFICITY||This assay has high sensitivity and excellent specificity for the detection of AST.
No significant cross-reactivity or interference between AST and analogs was observed.
Limited by current skills and knowledge, it is impossible to perform all possible cross-reactivity detection tests between AST and all analogs, therefore, cross reactivity may still exist.
