Pf pLDH (P. falciparum)

P. falciparum lactate dehydrogenase (PfLDH) is a oxidoreductase [EC]. It is the last enzyme of the glycolytic pathway, essential for ATP generation and one of the most abundant enzymes expressed by P. falciparum.[5] Plasmodium LDH (pLDH) from P. vivax, P. malariae, and P. ovale) exhibit 90-92% identity to PfLDH from P. falciparum.
