D(-)-lactate dehydrogenase in lower fungi.


A lactate dehydrogenase, specific for nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide and D(-)-lactate, has been detected in extracts from two fungi of the order Leptomitales (Oomycetes). Several fungi of this order carry out a lactic acid fermentation under conditions of reduced oxygen tension.
