While the sponge protoflgCKs do not appear to undergo myristoylation, these proteins are most likely cytoplasmic and would be distributed throughout the cell, including the flagellum. Thus, these cells would have the CK elements necessary for a fully functional spatial ATP buffering system. 24 Ellington and Suzuki Figure 3. Spatial ATP buffering by the CK/PCr system in spermatozoa and sponge choanocytes. Abbreviations: Mt (mitochondrion); N (nucleus); oxphos (oxidative phosphorylation). A second cell type in sponges may also be a likely site for CK isoform expression.

Furthermore, AGAT sequences were found in Ciona, Branchiostoma and Strongylocentrotus (DeLigio and Ellington, 2006). The available data support the view that the capacity for de novo Cr biosynthesis is likely widespread in the higher and lower invertebrate groups that maintain significant Cr/PCr pools and express CK. Validation of this assertion will come from the numerous genome and EST sequencing projects that are currently underway. 3. CreaT IS PRESENT IN PROTOCHORDATES AND LIKELY IN INVERTEBRATE GROUPS CreaT couples the movement of Na+ and Cl− down their concentration gradients with the movement of Cr across the plasma membrane.

Kinetic and thermodynamic properties of octamer/dimer transitions were suggested as regulatory parameters for energy transduction in mitochondrial intermembrane contact sites. However, octamer/dimer transitions are too slow for fast metabolic adaptations, although they might play a role in longterm adaptations or modulation of energy metabolism. , 2006). Octameric MtCK is characterized by specific membrane-binding properties that are absent or less developed in dimeric MtCK. , 1992). , 2006). It occurs in cristae and the peripheral intermembrane space of mitochondria (Figure 3) and shows a strong affinity for acidic phospholipids, in particular cardiolipin (diphosphatidyl glycerol) in the outer leaflet of the inner membrane, and to mitochondrial porin (VDAC, voltage dependent anion channel) in the outer membrane.
