|Other Names||Aspartate aminotransferase, mitochondrial, mAspAT, Fatty acid-binding protein, FABP-1, Glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase 2, Kynurenine aminotransferase 4, Kynurenine aminotransferase IV, Kynurenine--oxoglutarate transaminase 4, Kynurenine--oxoglutarate transaminase IV, Plasma membrane-associated fatty acid-binding protein, FABPpm, Transaminase A, GOT2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8968a was selected from the N-term region of human GOT2. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the irreversible transamination of the L-tryptophan metabolite L-kynurenine to form kynurenic acid (KA). As a member of the malate-aspartate shuttle, it has a key role in the intracellular NAD(H) redox balance. Is important for metabolite exchange between mitochondria and cytosol, and for amino acid metabolism. Facilitates cellular uptake of long-chain free fatty acids.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion matrix. Cell membrane. Note=Exposure to alcohol promotes translocation to the cell membrane.|

Glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase is a pyridoxal phosphate-dependent enzyme which exists in cytoplasmic and inner-membrane mitochondrial forms, GOT1 and GOT2, respectively. GOT plays a role in amino acid metabolism and the urea and tricarboxylic acid cycles. The two enzymes are homodimeric and show close homology.
