LDH and CK

LDH is a cytoplasmic enzyme with a high activity in heart, skeletal muscle, liver, kidney, and red blood cells. At least five isozymes of LDH have been identified. The clinical usefulness of the assay for LDH was improved by electrophoretic separation of the isozymes, which found that the LDH1 isozyme was the predominant form found in serum after acute MI (19). The LDH1 isozyme is also found in high concentration in the renal cortex and red blood cells. Other LDH isozymes (2, 3, and 4) also are...
