Status Information

Status
Discouraged
Comment
CK mass can be measured and reported and we know of one place that does have it in their catalogue. But it is not part of routine testing. CKMB mass is routinely reported but when it is reported as a fraction of total CK the denominator is the enzymatic measure of CK total.

Part Description

LP15510-8   Creatine kinase
Creatine kinase (CK), also known as phosphocreatine kinase or creatine phosphokinase (CPK) is an enzyme expressed by various tissues. It catalyzes the conversion of creatine to phosphocreatine, consuming adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and generating adenosine diphosphate (ADP). In tissues that consume ATP rapidly, especially skeletal muscles, but also the brain and smooth muscles, creatine phosphate serves as an energy reservoir for the rapid regeneration of ATP, the major source of energy in biochemical reactions.
