Reagents, Clinical Chemistry, Enzyme, Lactate Dehydrogenase, Isoenzyme
Definition : Clinical chemistry reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative chemical analyses of body fluids (typically serum) to determine the content of one or more of the isoenzymes of lactate dehydrogenase. At least five isoenzymes of lactate dehydrogenase have been characterized, usually named LD-1 to LD-5 (LD-6 is an immunoglobulin). Changes in isoenzyme ratios are used to determine disease or injury, such as cardiac or pulmonary infarcts.
