||Background: Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) is an enzyme of glycolytic pathway, ubiquitously found in living organisms. Increased glycolysis and LDH activity are associated with many pathologic conditions including inflammation and cancer, thereby making the enzyme a suitable drug target. Studies on conserved structural and functional domains of LDH from various species reveal novel inhibitory molecules. Our study describes Escherichia coli production and characterization of a moderately thermostable LDH (LDH-GT) from Geobacillus thermodenitrificans DSM-465. An in silico 3D model of recombinant enzyme and molecular docking with a set of potential inhibitors are also described. Results: The recombinant enzyme was overexpressed in E. coli and purified to electrophoretic homogeneity. The molecular weight of the enzyme determined by MALDI-TOF was 34,798.96 Da. It exhibited maximum activity at 65°C and pH 7.5 with a KM value for pyruvate as 45 µM. LDH-GT and human LDH-A have only 35.6% identity in the amino acid sequence. On the contrary, comparison by in silico structural alignment reveals that LDH-GT monomer has approximately 80% identity to that of truncated LDH-A. The amino acids "GEHGD" as well as His179 and His193 in the active site are conserved. Docking studies have shown the binding free energy changes of potential inhibitors with LDH-A and LDH-GT ranging from −407.11 to −127.31 kJ mol−1 . Conclusions: By highlighting the conserved structural and functional domains of LDH from two entirely different species, this study has graded potential inhibitory molecules on the basis of their binding affinities so that they can be applied for in vivo anticancer studies|
