Whilst it is formally stated that cardiac troponin is only released when cardiac myocytes undergo necrosis, there are a number of clinical situations where troponin is present in the circulation, without any apparent cardiac injury. In these cases, troponin half-life in the circulation is usually substantially shorter than that seen when troponin is released following myocardial infarction with frank necrosis. A mechanism has been described in liver, where large cytoplasmic molecules can pass...[Show more]
