Evolution of the arginine kinase gene family.
Phosphagen kinase of the giant tubeworm Riftia pachyptila. Cloning and expression of cytoplasmic and mitochondrial isoforms of taurocyamine kinase.
Complete mitochondrial genomes of two Japanese precious corals, Paracorallium japonicum and Corallium konojoi (Cnidaria, Octocorallia, Coralliidae): notable differences in gene arrangement.
Evolution and Divergence of the Genes for Cytoplasmic, Mitochondrial, and Flagellar Creatine Kinases
Comparison of the structure of the genes for selected cytoplasmic, mitochondrial, and flagellar CKs revealed two identical intron boundaries, further reinforcing the notion of a common evolutionary origin, but also showed patterns of changes in structure consistent with each gene type.

It appears that the annelid‐specific phosphagen kinases, including cytoplasmic and mitochondrial TKs, evolved from a CK‐like ancestor(s) early in the divergence of the protostome metazoans.
Toxocara canis: molecular cloning, characterization, expression and comparison of the kinetics of cDNA-derived arginine kinase.
Kinetic properties and structural characteristics of an unusual two‐domain arginine kinase of the clam Corbicula japonica
Evolution of the diverse array of phosphagen systems present in annelids.
Evolution of the Cytoplasmic and Mitochondrial Phosphagen Kinases Unique to Annelid Groups
The intron/exon organization of the genes for the following phosphagen kinases, including Eisenia LK, Sabellastarte AK, and Arenicola mitochondrial TK (MiTK), are determined, supporting the view that the MiCK gene is basal and ancestral to the phosphagenKinases unique to annelids.
