|Application ||WB, IHC, IF|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||42644 Da|
|Other Names||Creatine kinase B-type, B-CK, Creatine kinase B chain, CKB, CKBB|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the C-term of human Creatine Kinase B type was used as immunogen.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Creatine Kinase B Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||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.|

The creatine kinases are a family of enzymes with a highly conserved protein sequence, which are involved in the maintenance of ATP at sites of cellular work .Three cytoplasmic (non-mitochondrial) isoenzymes of creatine kinase (CK)' are readily identified in human tissue. These isoenzymes are dimeric molecules with two dissociable subunits designated as M- (muscle) or B- (brain) type that can reassociate to form the electrophoretically distinct MM, BB, or MB isotypes (1).The protein encoded by creatine kinase B is a cytoplasmic enzyme involved in energy homeostasis. The encoded protein reversibly catalyzes the transfer of phosphate between ATP and various phosphogens such as creatine phosphate (2). Creatine kinase isoenzymes are crucial to energy metabolism, particularly in tissues with high energy requirements, such as skeletal muscle, heart, brain and spermatozoa (3).
