Choline Kinase beta Molecule Background

Creatine kinase B-type (CKB) is also known as Creatine kinase B chain, B-CK and CKBB. CKB consists of a homodimer of two identical brain-type CK-B subunits. CKB reversibly catalyzes the transfer of phosphate between ATP and various phosphogens (e.g. creatine phosphate). Creatine kinase isoenzymes play a central role in energy transduction in tissues with large, fluctuating energy demands, such as skeletal muscle, heart, brain and spermatozoa. Furthermore, ectopic expression of the CKB in red cells and platelets is a rare, benign anomaly detected during a newborn screening program for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
