Abstract

The geographic distribution of the following enzyme systems is described in the rat heart (left and right ventricles) and in different skeletal muscles (soleus, plantaris, and red and white gastrocnemius): xanthine oxidase and dehydrogenase, creatine kinase isoenzymes, lactate dehydrogenase isoenzymes, and the free radical scavenger enzymes superoxide dismutase, glutathione reductase, and glutathione peroxidase. No substantial difference in enzyme activities was observed between the left and right ventricles. Skeletal muscles showed a clear distinction between enzyme activities depending on their composition of oxidative fibers and glycolytic fibers.
