Correlation between the motor activity of the small intestine and the intensity of energy formation in its muscular layer was studied. Significantly higher hexokinase activity was observed in the muscles of the duodenum than of the jejunum and ileum. Statistically significant differences in hexokinase activity were not found between the jejunum and ileum. Hexokinase activity was found to vary considerably and to correlate directly with the level of motor activity of the muscular layer, which forms the contractile system of the intestine.
