Summaries for CKM Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CKM Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a cytoplasmic enzyme involved in energy homeostasis and is an important serum marker for myocardial infarction. The encoded protein reversibly catalyzes the transfer of phosphate between ATP and various phosphogens such as creatine phosphate. It acts as a homodimer in striated muscle as well as in other tissues, and as a heterodimer with a similar brain isozyme in heart. The encoded protein is a member of the ATP:guanido phosphotransferase protein family. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CKM Gene

CKM (Creatine Kinase, Muscle) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CKM include hemophilia b and myocardial infarction. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Arginine and proline metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include creatine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CKB.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CKM Gene

  • 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
