* Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE), total succinate-dehydrogenase activity (SDH) reflecting fiber oxidative capacity, β-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (β-OAC) reflecting fatty acid oxydation, malate dehydrogenase (MDH), reflecting the citric acid cycle, 1-phosphofructokinase (PFK) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), reflecting glycolysis capacity, and creatine kinase (CK) and adenylokinase (AK), reflecting high-energy phosphate metabolism.
