Significant and characteristic alterations in the activity of serum glutamic oxaloacetic (SGO-T) have been shown to follow acute heart muscle and liver cell injury and to provide a rough index of the degree of such damage.1, 2 The activity of glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (GO-T) and that of glutamic pyruvic transaminase (GP-T) in homogenates of various human tissues are compared in table 1. The relative concentration of GP-T in liver as compared with heart tissue and skeletal muscle is proportionately greater than that of GO-T. This observation suggested that serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGP-T) might be a more specific index
