Low oxygen tension enhances hepatitis C virus replication.
Athens, Greece. In J Virol, 31 Mar 2013
Interestingly, hypoxia-mediated enhancement of HCV replication correlated directly with the increase in anaerobic glycolysis and creatine kinase B (CKB) activity that leads to elevated ATP production.
Proteomics reveals intersexual differences in the rat brain hippocampus.
Xi'an, China. In Anat Rec (hoboken), 31 Mar 2013
In line with Western-blotting validation, the proteomic identification revealed the overexpression of glial fibrillary acidic protein in female rats' hippocampi, and the overexpression of both creatine kinase B-type and DRP-2 in male rats' hippocampi.
Label-free quantitative proteomics of CD133-positive liver cancer stem cells.
Taipei, Taiwan. In Proteome Sci, 2011
The results were further validated by RT-PCR, western blot, flow cytometry or immunofluorescent staining which revealed that prominin-1, annexin A1, annexin A3, transgelin, creatine kinase B, vimentin, and EpCAM were indeed highly expressed in the CD133-positive hepatoma cells.
Sequence homology and structure predictions of the creatine kinase isoenzymes.
Zürich, Switzerland. In Mol Cell Biochem, 1994
A 'CK framework' is defined, consisting of the most conserved sequence blocks, and 'diagnostic boxes' are identified which are characteristic for anyone creatine kinase isoenzyme (e.g. for vertebrate B-CK) and which may serve to distinguish this isoenzyme from all others (e.g. from M-CKs and Mi-CKs).
