Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) disrupts cardiac cell membranes, releasing intracellular cardiac proteins into the vascular system. Some of the proteins, including myoglobin, creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB), lactate dehydrogenase type 1 (LD1), and cardiac troponin subunits I and T, have proven useful in diagnosing AMI.
