ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
D-lactate dehydratase.
Alternative Name(s)
Glyoxylase III.
Reaction catalysed
(R)-lactate <=> methylglyoxal + H(2)O
  • The enzyme, described from the fungi Candida albicans and Schizosaccharomyces pombe, converts 2-oxopropanal to (R)-lactate in a single glutathione (GSH)-independent step.
  • The other known route for this conversion is the two-step GSH- dependent pathway catalyzed by EC and EC
