D-lactic dehydrogenase catalyzes the conversion of D-lactate into D-pyruvate while reducing NAD+ to NADH and H+.
D-LDH, Native (Staphylococcus epidermidis)
D-Lactic Dehydrogenase can be used to generate inhibitors of angiotensin converting enzyme by catalyzing the production of the intermediate (R)-2-Hydroxy-4-phenylbutyric acid. D-Lactic dehydrogenase has been used in a study to assess mechanisms of active transport in isolated membrane vesicles. It has also been used in a study to investigate β-galactoside transport in bacterial membrane preparations.
