Will be supplied as "Ascorbate Oxidase GOT-deficient". Unit of measure is "MU".
Oxidoreductase that oxidizes ascorbic acid to dehydroascorbate.
Use Ascorbate Oxidase, poor of AST/ALT, in a variety of diagnostic tests to eliminate the interference of ascorbic acid, since ascorbic acid interferes with the Trinder reaction that is widely used for the colorimetric determination of analytes. It is useful in liquid as well as dry chemistry test, e.g., for the determination of uric acid, lactate, creatinine or transaminases.
