By H. Lang (auth.), Dr. Hermann Lang (eds.)

No one has counted the enzymes within the human organism, and doubtless their profuse quantity can merely be anticipated from the limitations the finite mass of genetic fabric imposes. nonetheless, nu­ merous catalytic actions were pointed out and investigated for his or her medical relevance. After one century of such examine, unusually, just a handful of enzymes has survived the strict trial of medical program to discover general clinical use. Dis­ relating to genetic defects, lots of the diagnostically used en­ zymes perform metabolic conversions primary to existence: the usage, move or fixation of important nutrition or of cheJ,llical strength. Creatine kinase is crucial to the functionality of the mitochond­ rion, the mobile strength generator. the broader distribution of this enzyme is associated with tissues whose body structure crucially is dependent upon an adaptable provide of strength, particularly skeletal muscle, the mind, and the guts. simply as those 3 tissues fluctuate of their pre­ ference for various power resources, each one produces a unique isoenzyme of creatine kinase. for that reason, the discovering of elevat­ ed creatine kinase task in blood can result in quite a few interpretations, yet in perform the analysis of acute myocardial infarction is the foremost consideration.

Figures from Morin [520], figures in brackets from Wong et al. 1 CK-BB proved to be the most effective when used to measure the percentage increase of activity of purified human CK-MM with the different SHreagents. They were even superior to N-acetyl cysteine as reported by Stolle and Rick [776], see Table 4. A thorough investigation concerning the stability of human CK isoenzymes in presence of various thiol compounds at different temperatures recently has been published by Szasz et al.

Double immunodiffusion pattern of purified creatine kinase isoenzymes with antibodies against CK-MM, CK-BB, and CK-MiMi. 4 Concluding Remarks In contrast to earlier studies which failed to detect creatine kinase in mitochondria of human muscle tissues [284, 387-389, 464], substantial amounts of this enzyme were found in human heart muscle mitochondria. Preliminary results suggest that creatine kinase is also present in mitochondria of human skeletal and smooth muscle as well as of brain tissue.

714], Jacobus and Lehninger [331], and Saks et al. [687] presented evidence that mitochondrial creatine kinase is bound to the outer surface of the inner mitochondrial membrane (see Fig. 2). Mitochondria account for 30-40% of the heart muscle cell volume (see Fig. 3a and 3b). To assess the subcellular distribution of the isoenzymes of creatine kinase in human heart muscle, cell fractions were prepared by differential centrifugation based on the methods described by Morton [532], Mac Lennan [462 a], Jacobus and Lehninger {331] and Saks et al.
