The evaluation of the specific activity of some enzymes related to energy transduction was performed in 7 fresh samples of malignant gliomas and in 4 samples of normal brain tissue. Compared with normal brain tissue, the hexokinase, phosphofructokinase and citrate synthase activities are lower; the lactate dehydrogenase and succinate dehydrogenase are unchanged, while glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and NADP+-isocitrate dehydrogenase activities are higher in gliomas.
