    3. Serum Cardiac Markers
  2. Epidemiology
    1. Sensitivity: 100% of Myocardial Infarctions
    2. Specificity: Low (36% have Unstable Angina)
      1. See Troponin for false possible causes
  3. Labs: Timing Following Acute Myocardial Infarction
    1. Serum levels increase within 4-8 hours of MI onset
    2. Serum levels peak at 12 to 48 hours
    3. Serum levels are elevated for 4-10 days after MI
  4. Advantages
    1. More specific than Troponin T
    2. Not falsely elevated in Chronic Renal Failure
  5. Technique: ED Acute Coronary Syndrome evaluation
    1. Obtain 2 Troponin values 6 hours apart
  6. Interpretation
    1. Level >1.0 to 1.2 suggestive of Myocardial Infarction
    2. Two negative values 3-6 hours apart
      1. Predicts low likelihood of Acute Coronary Syndrome

Troponin I (C0077401)

Definition (NCI) Troponin I, troponin T, and troponin C are the three closely associated subunits of the troponin complex of thin filaments in muscle. The complex serves as a calcium-sensitive switch that regulates muscle contraction. In the absence of calcium, Troponin I binds actin, inhibits actomyosin ATPase activity, and inhibits F-actin-myosin interactions. The troponin I gene family comprises three isoforms: skeletal TNI-fast, skeletal TNI-slow, and TNI-cardiac. (from OMIM 191044, 191043, 191042 and NCI)
Definition (MSH) One of the three polypeptide chains that make up the TROPONIN complex. It inhibits F-actin-myosin interactions.
