lactate dehydrogenase

 (LD, LDH) [lak´tāt de-hi´dro-jĕ-nās]
an enzyme that catalyzes the interconversion of lactate and pyruvate. It is widespread in tissues and is particularly abundant in kidney, skeletal muscle, liver, and myocardium. It has five isoenzymes denoted LD1 to LD5. The “flipped” pattern in which the serum LD1 level is greater than the LD2 level is indicative of an acute myocardial infarction. This pattern occurs within 12 to 24 hours after the attack.

In conclusion, LDH is present in different body tissues and its increasing level may be the expression of localised or systemic endothelial damage/dysfunction.
A likely explanation is that capillary sampling results in increased erythrocyte membrane stress, thereby causing an increased leakage of cations such as potassium, whereas proteins such as LDH and hemoglobin remain intracellular.

Biochemical testing was performed to evaluate ALP, ALT, AST, CK, GLDH, LDH, [gamma]-glutamyl transferase (GGT), and sorbitol dehydrogenase (SDH) activities, as well as bile acid (BA) and cholesterol (CHOL) concentrations.
In the case of Fe, Co and LDH apart from percent specificity and negative predictive value all the other values were found to be too low to be useful in predicting SCM caused by Gram negative bacteria (Table 4), but there values were satisfactory and acceptable when we measured them in SCM milk infected by Gram positive bacteria only (Table 5).

We know that excessive spinal joint laxity under mechanical loading in BJHS can lead to a torn annulus fibrosis because of abnormal annular collagen alignment in the lumbar spinal discs; therefore, the purpose of the present study was to identify whether or not there is a relationship between BJHS and LDH.
