Condensing Enzyme Levels in the Serum After Experimental Myocardial Infarction
Increased levels of condensing enzyme are shown to occur in the sera of dogs after experimental myocardial infarction. The animals with the elevated levels also showed characteristic changes of the electrical activity of the heart and associated increases in the glutamate-oxal acetate transaminase activity of serum.
Condensing enzyme has been detected in the sera of patients who suffered myocardial infarctions.
