LPH

Abbreviation for lipotropic hormone.

LCT

A gene on chromosome 2q21 that encodes lactase, a glycosyl hydrolase integral to the plasma membrane, which has activity of both phlorizin hydrolase and lactase.
 
Molecular pathology
Defects of LCT cause congenital lactase deficiency.

Tests for the diagnosis of hypolactasia consist of biochemical tests such as the lactose breath hydrogen test (LBHT), lactase enzyme activity tests performed with biopsy samples of the small intestine, and most recently, molecular tests to determine the allelic variants of LPH C [right arrow] [T.

When one includes numerous peacetime exercises and buildups to respond to crises, one is hard-pressed to identify a naval event during the 40-year career of the Iwo Jimas that did not involve LPHs.
The LPHs were also employed in the development of advanced naval concepts.
During the 40 years that LPHs served in the fleet they operated in every ocean -- participating in exercises, conducting landing operations in the Vietnam War, performing astronaut recovery missions, evacuating embassy staffs in danger, serving as bases for minesweeping helicopters, and testing new concepts of naval warfare.
Although the United States has not conducted amphibious assaults under fire since 1950, as the Vietnam conflict raged LPHs provided valuable platforms for moving and landing troops in Southeast Asia.
