RECENT work from the institutes of Meyerhof1 and von Euler2 has demonstrated the important part played by cozymase in muscle glycolysis. Cozymase has now been quantitatively determined in, and isolated in a pure form from, mammalian muscle3. In muscle, as in other tissues, cozymase is present partly in the reduced, dihydro form in equilibrium with the oxidized form, 35–40 per cent of the total cozymase in mammalian muscle being in the reduced form2,4.
