Application Brief 1028: LDH NanoPro AssayApplication Notes
Application Notes Summary
In many different species, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) constitutes a major checkpoint of anaerobic glycolysis by catalyzing the reduction of pyruvate into lactate. LDH in its native form, is a tetramer of LDHA (calculated pI: 8.4) and LDHB (calculated pI: 5.7) proteins in different combinations. When the number of protein B over protein A increases, isozymes become more efficient in catalyzing the oxidation of lactate to pyruvate. LDH overexpression has been implicated in the pathogenesis and progression of many cancers and may constitute a valid therapeutic target for diseases.
