The levels of extracellular glutamic-oxalacetic transaminase (GOT: EC 2.6.1.1) activity have been measured in cell-free supernatants of human semen and of semen + cryoprotectant mixtures both before freezing by either cryostorage or quench-freezing regimes, and after subsequent thawing. The mean level of GOT activity in seminal plasma was 293 (+/- 15 sem) IU/l at 37 degrees C, this being 15 times the level in normal blood plasma. Seminal GOT is positively correlated (p less than 0.001) with the… CONTINUE READING
