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.

This cross-sectional study was performed on LDH patients treated in our hospital between October 2015 and August 2018.
The mean serum LDH was also found to be higher in patients with exudative effusions (393) to that with transudative effusions (157) with p value <0.0001.
In our study, we will measure lactic dehydrogenase (LDH), CPK in CSF of various types of meningitis cases with an aim to find out their diagnostic significance in cases of meningitis.
The dispersions consisting of CMPSF and intercalated LDH in DMAc were prepared as follows.
If the CSF level of LDH in a traumatic tap less than 2 hours was 120, and we expected it to increase at least 20% in SAH, the sample size needed could be calculated as 26 patients in each group (SD, 25; [alpha] = 0.05; power, 80%).
The surface and cross-sectional morphologies of LDH coating were observed by a Philips XL30 and JEOL JSM-6700F SEM, respectively.
The molecular mechanism was elucidated by measuring the LDH activity, lactate content and ATP level in pika's skeletal muscle.
Also the bands in the 1000-400 [cm.sup.-1] range, relative to [[delta].sub.as]C[O.sub.3.sup.2-] (640 [cm.sup.-1]) and relative to Al-O and Al-OH modes (780, 550, and 450 [cm.sup.-1]) [26], remained unchanged in contrast of what was previously reported for the intercalation of noble metals by LDH [25, 26].
Thus, the purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of LBP caused by lumbar disc herniation (LDH) on intradiscal forces and facet forces at five lumbar MSUs and the activities of the eight back main muscle groups and nine front main muscle groups in the spinal region during trunk flexion, ipsilateral picking up, and contralateral picking up.
