Abstract

The metabolism of tendons belonging to normal and hypokinetic muscles were compared on the basis of LDH enzyme specific activity, LDH isoenzyme composition and M subunit ratio. The LDH enzyme activities of normal tendons were relatively high, that is the intensity of glycolysis was significant, consequently the tendon was not a bradytroph tissue. The M subunit content calculated from the isoenzyme composition was high, therefore the anaerobic path of the energy substitution was intensive in the normal tendon. In the hypokinetic state, the LDH enzyme activities of tendons were considerably decreased, that is the intensity of glycolysis was significantly diminished and also the isoenzyme composition just as the M subunit content altered too. The metabolism of tendons was influenced by the degree of their loading.
