Evidence of lactate dehydrogenase in Anaplasma marginale.


Extracts from preparations of partially purified Anaplasma marginale revealed low levels of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH). Enzyme inhibition by immune sera further indicated that A. marginale possesses a protein moiety the same as that of the normal red blood cell (RBC), although data suggested an alteration of LDH(1) from that observed in normal RBC. Bimodal… (More)
