High Liver Enzymes | Aspartate vs Alanine Aminotransferase (AST vs. ALT) | Causes



Lesson on Liver Enzymes, Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) vs Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT), “Transaminitis”, and Causes of Elevations. One is more specific to the liver than the other, and one has a shorter half life than the other, allowing analysis of how long liver damage may have been occurring. In this lesson, we discuss both AST and ALT, their functions, their half life, organs in which they are located, and causes of elevations in both AST and ALT.
