Accepted name: lactate dehydrogenase (NAD+,ferredoxin)
Reaction: lactate + 2 NAD+ + 2 reduced ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster = pyruvate + 2 NADH + 2 oxidized ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster
Other name(s): electron bifurcating LDH/Etf complex
Systematic name: lactate:NAD+,ferredoxin oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme, isolated from the bacterium Acetobacterium woodii, uses flavin-based electron confurcation to drive endergonic lactate oxidation with NAD+ as oxidant at the expense of simultaneous exergonic electron flow from reduced ferredoxin to NAD+.
