Mechanisms of cellular enzyme release. II. Inhibition of sarcolemmal enzymes by myopathy-inducing agents.


A defective membrane mechanism has been suggested [Arch. Neurol. 33, 315 (1976)] for the pathogenesis of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The characteristic clinical and biological findings, including leakage of cellular enzymes into the serum in the disease, have been duplicated by the imipramine/serotonin rat myopathy model. Sarcolemma was prepared from… (More)
