In brief: Troponin

The currently used, most accurate enzyme is troponin which comes in two varieties: troponin i (that's the letter "i") and troponin t.
There's no major differences - some labs use one, some the other. Ck, also known as cpk, is also used but it's older, less sensitive, and less specific.
