It was the aim of the workshop to summarize present knowledge of the variant creatine kinases in human blood. Discussion was centered on the nature, measurement, and clinical significance of these variants. On the basis of the presented results, the different creatine kinase variants can be classified as follows: Normal size variants (80000 Daltons). These originate from postsynthetic modifications of the three dimeric isoenzymes creatine kinase-MM, MB or BB. The M subunit can be transformed by… CONTINUE READING
