LACTIC DEHYDROGENASE: GENETIC CONTROL IN MAN.

Abstract

A genetically determined variant of lactic dehydrogenase has been observed in the red cells of four members of two generations of a Brazilian family. The appearance of the variant after starch-gel electrophoresis of the hemolysates supports the concept that the lactic dehydrogenase isozymes are determined by the interaction of two subunits which are under separate genetic control. The products of the mutant and normal allele do not, however, appear to associate randomly to form isozymes. The similarity of the relative retardation of normal and mutant isozymes in gels made with increasing concentrations of starch suggests that they do not differ significantly in size.
