Abstract: In 927 biologically unrelated Caucasian patients with coronary artery disease it was investigated whether the NcoI restriction fragment length polymorphism of the muscle-specific creatine kinase (CKMM) gene is associated with aerobic power and with the response to physical training. Physical training significantly (P<0.001) increased peak oxygen consumption in the GG, AG and AA NcoI genotypes. Covariate-adjusted peak oxygen consumption at baseline, after training and the response to training were not different across CKMM NcoI genotypes.
