Mouse anti human creatine phosphokinase, clone BGN/2ba6 recognizes creatine phosphokinase. Also known as creatine kinase (CK), it is a dimer with a molecular mass of approximately 80 kDa. In vertebrate cells, the cytosolic CK enzymes consist of two different subunits, either B (brain type) or M (muscle type). They combine to produce three different isoenzymes: CKMM, CKBB and CKMB. CKBB is the major CK isoenzyme of the brain (Eppenberger et al, 1967, Dawson et al, 1967).

Creatine phosphokinase is an enzyme expressed in tissues and cell types with high energy requirements and is involved in cellular energy homeostasis. CK reversibly catalyzes the conversion of creatine and consumes adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to create phosphocreatine and adenosine diphosphate (ADP) (Wallimann et al, 1992, 2011).

Mouse anti human creatine phosphokinase is specific for the CKBB isoenzyme and does not react with the B subunit in CKMB. There is minimal reactivity with other human serum proteins.
