Creatine Kinase BB is a cytoplasmic enzyme involved in energy homeostasis. The encoded protein reversibly catalyzes the transfer of phosphate between ATP and various phosphogens such as creatine phosphate. It acts as a homodimer in brain as well as in other tissues, and as a heterodimer with a similar muscle isozyme in heart. The encoded protein is a member of the ATP:guanido phosphotransferase protein family. A pseudogene of this gene has been characterized.
CKBB Human Recombinant produced in Pichia Pastoris is a glycosylated polypeptide chain having an identical amino acid sequence compared to the native enzyme, purified under non-denaturing conditions and reacts with polyclonal antibodies to BB Isoenzyme in ELISA.
The CKBB is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
