Authors: Christian Vial, (Claude Bernard Lyon I University, France) 
Book Description:
Creatine kinases and arginine kinases are an historical model in enzymology. They belong to the large family of phosphagen kinases which transfer a phosphoryl group from ATP to a nitrogen atom within a guanidinium group to form that was called by the early muscle physiologists a phosphagen . These compounds and the enzymes that catalyze their formation and use are present in cells with important and rapidly fluctuating energy requirements.
