I measured total creatine kinase (CK; EC 2.7.3.2) activity and isoenzyme pattern in normal and neoplastic tissues. CK activity was detected in all of them examined. In various tumors it was greater than, less than, or the same as that in normal tissue, no clear correlation being seen between total activity and growth rate or degree of differentiation. In several cases, there was a greater proportion of the CK-MM isoenzyme, and 15 of 53 cases showed an atypical CK-MM band. The atypical CK-MM… CONTINUE READING
