Previous GeneCards Identifiers for LDHB Gene
This gene encodes an enzyme which catalyzes the reversible conversion of lactate and pyruvate, and NAD and NADH, in the glycolytic pathway. Mutations in this gene are associated with lactate dehydrogenase B deficiency. Pseudogenes have been identified on the X chromosome and on chromosome. Multiple alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]
GeneCards Summary for LDHB Gene
LDHB (Lactate Dehydrogenase B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LDHB include lactate dehydrogenase-b deficiency and glycogen storage disease due to lactate dehydrogenase h-subunit deficiency. Among its related pathways are Disease and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and NAD binding. An important paralog of this gene is LDHC.
