AST/SGOT is found in many tissues throughout the body, including the liver, heart, muscles, kidney, and brain. If any of these organs or tissues is affected by disease or injury, AST is released into the bloodstream. This means that AST isn't as specific an indicator of liver damage as ALT (also known as alanine aminotransferase, another type of enzyme found almost entirely in the liver). The ratio of AST and ALT levels are commonly used as biomarkers for liver health.
