Creatine kinase protein sequence encoded by a cDNA made from Torpedo californica electric organ mRNA.


Creatine kinase (ATP creatine N-phosphotransferase, EC is important in the maintenance of ATP levels in high energy-requiring tissues such as muscle and brain. A complete understanding of its function requires knowledge of its amino acid sequence. To obtain cDNA clones encoding creatine kinase sequences, a cDNA bank was constructed using mRNA from… (More)
