Medical - Medical: Cardiology
Spanish term or phrase: Curva enzimática
This is from a patient report of a woman with PSVT.

It comes under 'additional investigations':

Curva enzimática

Another example is later on:

'Se realiza analítica que no evidencia alteraciones. Curva enzimática negativa'

I think it's something to do with cardiac enzymes. I thought it was to do with serial enzyme testing?

Thanks in advance!

enzymatic/enzyme [reaction/activity] curve
Explanation:
"enzymatic" is the adjective form of enzyme (I recently proofread two papers that used the term) and simplye 'noun + noun' form of "enzyme curve" works as well.

As Patricia stated it is related to the kinetics of the following equilibrium reaction equation:
Substrate + Enzyme <--> Products + Enzyme

the kinetics refers to the rates (the speeds) for forming the products and how they are favoured by increasing/decreasing temp, changing pH, etc, etc.....from the equation we can extract the rate constant (K) [there are various, depending on the aspect of interest, Kformation, Kinhibition, Kproduct, etc.].
It is a standard method of analysing the enzymes efficacy.

You can include "reaction" or "activity" but it is not necessary, neither is it necessary to mention "kinetics" per se, because anyone working in the field, or with a very basic knowledge of the filed, knows that "enzyme curve" refers to the kinetics of the reaction.

Thanks!

Thanks David also - your comment was v helpful.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  David Brown: It's in there somewhere!! It is actually referring to the results of the serial measurements of the cardiac enzymes, usually CK or Troponin. If the curve goes upwards, i.e the enzyme results increase over time, it could be due to heart damage.

  -> Thanks David, I've just been chatting with a moderator about rule 3.3 and his/her interpretation (after asking their colleagues) was that variations on the same theme/synonyms aren't "multiple answers".

agree  Denise Southern: enzyme curve
