Creatinephosphokinase in Human Diploid Cell Lines
The creatinephosphokinase (CPK) has been intensively studied in human serum of normal individuals and in different pathological conditions, especially in various neuromuscular diseases. In some of them, as in Duchenne myopathy, its activity is significantly increased (1). In human tissues, the highest activity was found in muscle, heart and brain. Very low activity was detected in uterus, gall bladder, pylorus, adrenal and thyroid glands (2) and lung.
