Description

Creatine Kinase (CK), also known as Creatine Phosphokinase or Phospho-creatine Kinase is an enzyme expressed by various tissues and cell types. Disruption of cell membranes due to hypoxia or other injury releases CK from the cellular cytosol into the systemic circulation. CK is a dimeric enzyme consisting of two subunits, which can be either B-(brain type) or M- (muscle type). These subunits associate to form three isoenzymic forms: CK-BB, CK-MM and CK-MB. These isoenzymes are expressed at different levels in various human tissues. Though CK-MM is the most abundant CK isoenzyme in the cardiac muscles, CK-MB constitutes about 20% of the total CK in the cardiac muscle tissue. Elevated levels of total CK is not specific to the myocardial tissue and may be observed in patients with skeletal muscle injury and certain other disorders but as CK-MB is more specific to myocardial tissue, CK–MB levels along with total CK can be considered as an important diagnostic indicator of myocardial infarction.
