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.
