    • Abstract


      Lactate dehydrogenase isozymes in three species of genusRana demonstrate species specific and tissue specific patterns in their electrophoretic mobility and band pattern. The activity levels of the enzyme, the levels of lactic acid and pyruvic acid and theKm (lactate) suggest that the enzyme in muscle is less efficient as lactate oxidase when compared to that of heart. Heat inactivation studies suggest that the enzyme has some adaptive significance to the habitat preferences of the species.
