Isozymes of Creatine Kinase in Mammalian Myocardial Cell Culture

Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 194)


The high resting metabolism of the myocardium, a precise coupling of energy production to energy utilization and an efficient access to the available energy in the process of contraction are the functional characteristics of adult myocardium. The mechanisms which subserve these parameters are investigated.
