The AST  test is one of the components of the Liver Health Panel. AST {Aspartate aminotransferase} which used to be called SGOT is an enzyme found mostly in the heart and liver, and to a lesser extent in other muscles.

When liver or muscle cells are injured, they release AST into the blood. Testing for AST is usually used to detect liver damage.

AST levels are also often compared with levels of other liver enzymes, alakline phosphatase ( ALP) and alanine aminotransferase ( ALT), to determine which form of liver disease is present
