Malate/L-lactate dehydrogenase-like (IPR003767)

Short name: Malate/L-lactate_DH-like

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


The malate dehydrogenase (MDH) of some extremophilies is more similar to the L-lactate dehydrogenases (L-LDH) EC: from various sources than to other MDHs [PMID: 8476859].

This family consists of bacterial and archaeal malate/L-lactate dehydrogenases and related proteins. The archaebacterial malate dehydrogenase EC:, EC: deviates from the eubacterial and eukaryotic enzymes having a low selectivity for the coenzyme (NAD(H) or NADP(H)) and catalyzing the reduction of oxalacetate to malate more efficiently than the reverse reaction [PMID: 2110059].
