Gene: Ldhb (lactate dehydrogenase B) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ldhb
Name: lactate dehydrogenase B
RGD ID: 2997
Description: Exhibits several functions, including L-lactate dehydrogenase activity; NAD binding activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in NAD metabolic process and lactate metabolic process. Predicted to localize to cytosol and membrane raft. Orthologous to human LDHB (lactate dehydrogenase B); PARTICIPATES IN cysteine and methionine metabolic pathway; gluconeogenesis pathway; glycolysis pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-alpha-tocopherol; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: L-lactate dehydrogenase B; L-lactate dehydrogenase B chain; Lactate dehydrogenease B; LDH heart subunit; LDH-B; LDH-H; Ldh2
