A logical approach to the isolation of lactate dehydrogenase isozyme X from human tests: A general rationale for the isolation of homotetrameric LDH isozymes

  • P. Toowicharanont
  • J. Svasti


Immunoadsorbent and oxamate-Sepharose chromatography were used to isolate electrophoretically homogeneous LDH-X from human testes with a final specific activity of 125 IU/mg and good yields: other applications of this approach are discussed.
