Summaries for CKMT1A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CKMT1A Gene

  • Mitochondrial creatine (MtCK) kinase is responsible for the transfer of high energy phosphate from mitochondria to the cytosolic carrier, creatine. It belongs to the creatine kinase isoenzyme family. It exists as two isoenzymes, sarcomeric MtCK and ubiquitous MtCK, encoded by separate genes. Mitochondrial creatine kinase occurs in two different oligomeric forms: dimers and octamers, in contrast to the exclusively dimeric cytosolic creatine kinase isoenzymes. Many malignant cancers with poor prognosis have shown overexpression of ubiquitous mitochondrial creatine kinase; this may be related to high energy turnover and failure to eliminate cancer cells via apoptosis. Ubiquitous mitochondrial creatine kinase has 80% homology with the coding exons of sarcomeric mitochondrial creatine kinase. Two genes located near each other on chromosome 15 have been identified which encode identical mitochondrial creatine kinase proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CKMT1A Gene

CKMT1A (Creatine Kinase, Mitochondrial 1A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CKMT1A include Prostate Rhabdomyosarcoma and Dressler's Syndrome. Among its related pathways are CDK-mediated phosphorylation and removal of Cdc6 and Viral mRNA Translation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and creatine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CKMT1B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CKMT1A 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.
