phosphocreatine

 (PC) [fos″fo-kre´ah-tin]
a compound of creatine and phosphoric acid occurring in muscle, being the most important storage form of high-energy phosphate, the energy source in muscle contraction.

phos·pho·cre·a·tine

(fos'fō-krē'ă-tēn),
A phosphagen; a compound of creatine (through its NH2 group) with phosphoric acid; a source of energy in the contraction of vertebrate muscle, its breakdown furnishing phosphate for the resynthesis of ATP from ADP by creatine kinase. Compare: phosphoarginine.

n.
An organic compound, C4H10N3O5P, found in muscle tissue and capable of storing and providing energy for muscular contraction. Also called creatine phosphate.

phos·pho·cre·a·tine

(PCr) (fos'fō-krē'ă-tēn)
A phosphagen; a compound of creatine with phosphoric acid; a source of energy in the contraction of vertebrate muscle, its breakdown furnishing phosphate for the resynthesis of adenosine triphosphate from adenosine diphosphate by creatine kinase.
Synonym(s): creatine phosphate, Nω-phosphonocreatine.

phosphocreatine
