Disease relevance of ldhD


High impact information on ldhD

  • Lactate-to-acetate conversion was not impaired in these strains, while it was completely blocked in mutants deficient in NAD-dependent lactate dehydrogenase activities, encoded by the ldhD and ldhL genes [3].
  • These results strongly suggest that Arg-235 plays an essential role in the tight and correct binding of substrate to the binding site of D-LDH, as in the case of Arg-171 in L-LDH [4].
  • Essential role of arginine 235 in the substrate-binding of Lactobacillus plantarum D-lactate dehydrogenase [4].
  • L. plantarum KY-1, which is isolated from model kitchen refuse, showing lactic acid racemase activity, as well as d-lactate dehydrogenase activity, in its membrane fraction [5].
