What does LDH mean?
- Lactate dehydrogenase
- A lactate dehydrogenase is an enzyme present in a wide variety of organisms, including plants and animals. Lactate dehydrogenases exist in four distinct enzyme classes. Two of them are cytochrome c-dependent enzymes, each acting on either D-lactate or L-lactate. The other two are NAD-dependent enzymes, each acting on either D-lactate or L-lactate. This article is about the NAD-dependent L-lactate dehydrogenase.
