D-Lactate dehydrogenase (Leuconostoc mesenteroides)

CAS: 9028-36-8

D-lactate dehydrogenase; (R)-lactate:NAD+ oxidoreductase

In 3.2 M ammonium sulphate.

Minimum 1 year at 4oC. Check vial for details.

Specific activity:
~ 1,500 U/mg (25oC, pH 7.0 on pyruvic acid).

Unit definition:
One Unit of D-lactate dehydrogenase is defined as the amount of enzyme required to produce one μmole of D-lactate from pyruvic acid (0.77 mM) per minute in the presence of NADH in sodium phosphate buffer (92 mM), pH 7.0 at 25oC.

Catalyses the reaction:
D-Lactate + NAD+ = pyruvate + NADH + H+

Applications for the measurement of D-lactic acid in the food, fermentation, wine, beverage and dairy industries.
