Creatine kinase isoenzymes

Creatine kinase isoenzymes

(Science: enzyme) three isoenzymes of creatine kinase have been identified in human tissues: mm from skeletal muscle, mb from myocardial tissue and bb from nervous Tissue. Plasma from healthy humans contains mm almost exclusively. Elevated mb creatine kinase activity is a possible indicator of myocardial injury.
