Gene: Ckb (creatine kinase B) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ckb
Name: creatine kinase B
Description: Predicted to have creatine kinase activity and ubiquitin protein ligase binding activity. Involved in cellular chloride ion homeostasis and cerebellum development. Localizes to dendrite; neuronal cell body; and nucleus. Orthologous to human CKB (creatine kinase B); PARTICIPATES IN AGAT deficiency pathway; arginine and proline metabolic pathway; guanidinoacetate methyltransferase deficiency pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-bromopropane; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: B-CK; brain creatine kinase; Ckbb; Ckbr; CPK-B; creatine kinase B chain; creatine kinase B-type; creatine kinase, brain; creatine kinase-B; creatine phosphokinase M-type; RATCKBR
