The clinical significance of the serum enzymes creatine kinase (CK, EC 188.8.131.52), lactate dehydrogenase (LD, EC 184.108.40.206) and aspartate aminotransferase (EC 220.127.116.11), and the isoenzymes CK 1-3 and LD 1-5, in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is reviewed. Particular attention is given to electrophoretic analysis of the isoenzymes (and the CK isoforms/subforms) following AMI and thrombolytic therapy. Other protein markers for the monitoring of AMI, including myoglobin and muscle contractile proteins, are also discussed and the potential for the detection of new marker proteins using high-resolution two-dimensional electrophoretic methods is demonstrated. Whilst emphasis is placed upon electrophoretic methods the value of complementary immunoassays is acknowledged in order to maintain a balanced perspective.
