Lactate dehydrogenase enzyme, molecular model. This enzyme converts pyruvate to lactate in the final steps of glycolysis, and lactate to pyruvate during the lactic acid cycle. Glycolysis is the metabolic pathway that produces energy from glucose. The lactic acid cycle moves lactate produced in the muscles to the liver, where it is converted into glucose.
