Interestingly, studies in rats have demonstrated that the expression of the MCT1 isoform in striated skeletal muscles is strongly correlated with the oxidative capacity of different types of fibers, enzymes citrate synthase, lactate dehydrogenase, cardiac isoform, with the rate of transport of lactate from the circulation, and inversely correlated with muscle fibers of glycolytic characteristics (39).
The activities of y-glutamyltransferase and lactate dehydrogenase were not significantly different (P>0.05), in the serum of the test fish, however, there were varying levels of significant difference (P<0.05) in the enzymes activities in the liver and kidney as the concentrations of the plant leaf dust increased.
Significant differences were noted for lactate dehydrogenase activity among male HAEC groups treated with LDL and antioxidants, alone or in combination.

Next, a total of 270 antibody positive samples were further tested in plasmodium specific lactate dehydrogenase ELISA test (Pan-pLDH assay cut off (mean + 3SD; OD = 0.10); 6 antibody positive samples (PS) (PS numbers 43, 94, and 107 from residents samples and PS numbers 161, 172, and 230 from travelers samples) reacted positively in pLDH antigen assay (Figure 5).
