D-lactate dehydrogenase. Substrate specificity and use as a catalyst in the synthesis of homochiral 2-hydroxy acids.


PMID 2610514

Abstract

This note compares the substrate specificity of D-lactate dehydrogenase (D-LDH, EC 1.1.1.28) to that of L-lactate dehydrogenase (L-LDH, EC 1.1.1.27), illustrates three procedures that use D-LDH in synthesis and two methods for recycling NADH, and provides experimental details illustrating the use of D-LDH in organic synthesis.
