The transmural distribution of five glucose metabolizing enzymes (hexokinase; glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase; phosphofructokinase; aldolase; and lactate dehydrogenase) were explored in the left and in the right ventricle wall of rat, ox and pig hearts. The levels of most of these enzyme activities were different in the different animal species and (within the same species) in the two ventricles. Most of these enzyme activities were found to be non-uniformly distributed across the left (but not across the right) ventricle wall. Differences in the transmural distribution of enzyme activities were detected among the three examined mammalian species.
