Troponin T is a regulatory protein released when cardiac cell necrosis occurs. It is not normally present in blood unless cardiac damage has occurred. Troponin T frequently appears in serum as early as one to three hours after the onset of myocardial infarction and remains elevated for 10-14 days. In cases of unstable angina and acute myocardial infarction with minimal cardiac damage, low elevations of CK and CK-MB are difficult to interpret; measurement of serum troponin T is a useful diagnostic aid in such patients.

Remove serum from cells and freeze as soon as
possible. Minimize exposure to room temperature.
Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
