lactate dehydrogenase

n. Abbr. LDH
Any of a class of enzymes that catalyze the reversible interconversion of pyruvate and lactate, found predominantly in the liver, kidneys, skeletal muscle, heart muscle, and red blood cells.

lac′tate dehy′drogenase

an enzyme of carbohydrate metabolism that interchanges lactate and pyruvate: elevated blood levels indicate injury to kidney, heart, or muscles. Abbr.: LDH
