Aalto Scientific has been extracting and purifying enzymes and proteins from human sources (plasma, serum, urine and tissue) since 1979. We were the first commercial source of human Creatine Kinase isoenzymes (MM, MB and BB), which aided in the industry’s development of immunoassays for CK-MB. Today, Aalto offers a complete line of clinically significant human proteins and hormones in a variety of purity levels suitable for either control sera manufacturing or antibody development.
Alpha-amylase is an oligosaccharide endoglycosidase, an enzyme that cleaves an internal glycosidic bond within a poly or oligosaccharide. In the case of alpha-amylase, 1,4 linkage between two glucose moieties, cleaving the C-O bond between the C1 carbon and the oxygen, is random.
Aspartate Transaminase (AST) is a member of the aminotransferase family and catalyzes the reversible transfer of the amino group from glutamate to oxaloacetate while replacing the amino group of glutamate with a carbonyl group.
