Enzyme activities of myocardial energy metabolism during prolonged digoxin treatment in rats.

The effect of prolonged digoxin treatment (1 mg/kg day for 8 days) on the activity levels of some enzymes of energy metabolism (phosphofructokinase, lactate dehydrogenase, citrate synthase, succinate dehydrogenase) in rat myocardium was studied. In the control animals receiving the solvent mixture (glycerol:ethanol:water in 1:1:1) a transient decrease in… CONTINUE READING
