Abstract

A genomic library from Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. cremoris was screened for D-lactate dehydrogenase activity using a stereospecific lactate detection test on agar plate. Among 3500 clones tested, six positive colonies were found on D-lactate detection plate, displaying significantly higher D-LDH activity than Escherichia coli host strain.
