1. Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) occupies an important position in cell metabolism. 2. Teleosts possess at least three genetic loci coding for lactate dehydrogenase subunits, Ldh-A, Ldh-B and Ldh-c. LDH exists in most tissues in several isozymic forms. 3. The isozyme LDH-C4 is synthesized predominantly in regions of the nervous system concerned with the eye.

A compilation of the species of fishes of the subclass Actinopterygii for the study of the PGI isozyme system is given. PGI appears to be codified by more than one locus in fishes; 65% of the species analysed here have two loci for PGI. PGI duplication in fishes and the relationship of isozymes of PGI with temperature and metabolism are discussed.
