Adenylate kinase (EC 220.127.116.11) (also known as ADK or myokinase) is a phosphotransferase enzyme that catalyzes the interconversion of adenine nucleotides, and plays an important role in cellular energy homeostasis.
ADK, Native (Chicken)
Myokinase from chicken muscle has been used in a study to assess the release of enzymes via acute myositis and neurogenic atrophy in muscles. It has also been used in a study to investigate the development of sarcoplasmic reticulum membranes in chicken pectoralis muscle cells.
Mutational analysis of the amino acid proline 17 of myokinase from chicken muscle is critical for structural stability, substrate binding and enzyme activity.
