Creatine kinase: An enzyme with a central role in cellular energy metabolism


The enzyme creatine kinase (CK), catalyzing the reversible transfer of the N-phosphoryl group from phosphocreatine (PCr) to ADP to regenerate ATP, plays a key role in the energy homeostasis of cells with intermittently high, fluctuating energy requirements, e.g. in skeletal and cardiac muscle, neurons, photoreceptors, spermatozoa and electrocytes.
