External Ids for LDHD Gene
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the D-isomer specific 2-hydroxyacid dehydrogenase family. The similar protein in yeast has both D-lactate and D-glycerate dehydrogenase activities. Alternative splicing occurs at this locus and two transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for LDHD Gene
LDHD (Lactate Dehydrogenase D) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein. GO annotations related to this gene include flavin adenine dinucleotide binding and D-lactate dehydrogenase (cytochrome) activity. An important paralog of this gene is AGPS.
