The stem heights associated with substrates A5, A6, A7, A8, A9, A10, A11, A12, A13, A14, A15, A17, A18 and A19 were higher than of CK. Among these, the stem heights of A8 and A19 were significantly higher than CK, indicating that substrates A8 and A19 may significantly enhance the stem height of the bitter gourd plant.
There is a cytosolic pool of unbound cardiac troponin which is released acutely after myocardial infarction, and mimics the release of other cytosolic proteins like CK. The smaller cytosolic pool represents about 6% of cTnT and 3% of cTnI, and a similar percentage of the cytosolic pool exists for CK-MB.
(7) An alternative explanation for the low CK levels is that a generalised inflammatory state may result in post-transcriptional modification and enhanced degradation of CK. CK is an unstable enzyme and vulnerable to numerous post-transcriptional changes in the setting of generalised inflammation.
Among these components the most important and the widely used one is CK. CK is the enzyme which renews ATP consumed in the contraction and transport cycles of muscles.
(10,11) Higher-intensity, longer-duration, and weight-bearing exercise (eccentric muscular contractions and downhill running) cause the greatest rises in CK. (10) Other influences include temperature, altitude, gravitational forces, noise, and vibration.

Blood was collected from the jugular vein into collection tubes (Beckon Dickinson) containing EDTA for the analysis of cardiac troponins and into the same type tubes with no additive for CK. The blood concentration of cTnI was measured by a modified Access[R] AccuTnI[TM] immunoassay (Beckman-Coulter) performed manually on 96-well plates according to the manufacturer's recommended experimental conditions.
The most likely explanation for the elevation in CK and normal ALD is the presence of a macro CK. Macro CK type 1 is a complex of an immunoglobulin, usually IgG, and CK-BB.
