Explanation:
TGO = GOT (glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase).
TGP = GPT (glutamic pyruvic transaminase).
Use the English acronyms, which are common.
An "S" before either one stands for "serum" if you run into that.
Mangord is right, but has a couple of typos. Check "glutamic" (no "h") and "oxaloacetic", not "oxalacetic".
