LDH consists of A and B subunits that assemble into homo- or hetero- tetramers that are distributed in the body in various combinations reflecting the metabolic requirements of different tissues and are consistent with the catalytic properties of the isozymes (Cahn et al., 1962; Fine et al., 1963).

Some drugs like rifampicin and dexamethasone can increase the CYP2D6 metabolism through induction of CYP450 isozymes. Some other drugs like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), paroxetine and fluoxetine and the antidepressant, bupropion, and the class I antiarrhythmic agent, quinidine are CYP2D6 inhibitors and can reduce or even completely block the CYP2D6 metabolism.
It is well established that a defect in adipocyte-derived hormone leptin is significantly contributing to the obesity progress.8 A high serum leptin level reflects excessive accumulation of fat in the adipose tissue and other peripheral parts of the body.7 Recently, an ALP isozyme was reported to be expressed in adipocytes, which is implicated to raise fat depots during the course of enhanced adipogenesis in obesity.
