Creatine Kinase BB is concentrated in the brain and lungs Because the CKBB isoenzyme, CPK-1 isoenzyme is predominately found in the brain and lungs, injury to either of these organs (for example, stroke or lung injury due to a pulmonary embolism) are associated with elevated levels of this isoenzyme.
