The release of cytoplasmic enzymes into the blood is usually linked with severe cell damage. Consider the following scenario: Creatine kinase is a marker for cardiac or skeletal muscle cell damage.

Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) is a protein that is released by ruptured red blood cells and a variety of other cells.
