Plasma creatine phosphokinase (CPK) activity was determined in 14 monozygotic (MZ) and 14 dizygotic (DZ) twin pairs. The heritability indexes calculated for plasma CPK activity indicated support for the hypothesis that plasma CPK activity is under some genetic control. This finding is discussed in relation to various diseases in which plasma CPK activity is increased.
