|Other Names||Creatine kinase B-type, B-CK, Creatine kinase B chain, CKB, CKBB|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7059b was selected from the Center region of human CKB. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. 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.|

Creatine Kinase (CK) is a dimeric enzyme composed of either M- or B-type subunits. The resulting isoenzymes are expressed at varying levels in different tissues. CK-BB, a cytoplasmic predominantly found in brain tissues, participates in energy homeostasis, reversibly catalyzing the transfer of a phosphate group between ATP and target proteins such as a creatine phosphate. CK-BB exists in normally neglible amounts in the serum of adults, overexpression of CK-BB is associated with cancers of the breast, ovary, prostate, colon, and in small-cell lung cancer. Global assessment of changes in serum levels of CK-BB, CK-MB and CK-MM, are used as a marker for myocardial infarction.
