Abstract

Transketolase isoenzyme patterns of Wernicke-Korsakoff patients, relatives, alcoholics and controls, obtained by isoelectric focusing of purified erythrocyte transketolase, were all identical. After a series of investigations published by several authors little evidence remains to support the hypothesis of an inborn transketolase abnormality in Wernicke-Korsakoff patients.
