Pv pLDH (P. vivax)

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. Plasmodium LDH (pLDH) from P. vivax, P. malariae, and P. ovale) exhibit 90-92% identity to PfLDH from P. falciparum.
