In order to evaluate whether functional differences exist between allelic variants (allozymes) of the B-type lactate dehydrogenase (L-lactate:NAD+ oxidoreductase, EC 1.1.1.27) in the fish Fundulus heteroclitus, the kinetic properties were examined. Differences in product inhibition between allelic isozymes were observed. LDH-Bb4 was found to be inhibited by lower concentrations of both lactate and pyruvate than either LDH-Ba/Bb or LDH-Ba4. While the pH and temperature dependence for maximal… CONTINUE READING
