Supplementary Material

The supplementary material contains a table that outlines the purification scheme and typical yield for white muscle LDH from the anoxia-tolerant T. s. elegans. The results closely resemble those shown for control T. s. elegans within the article (Table 1). Additionally, the supplementary material contains a representative kinetic plot showing the activity of control and anoxic LDH with respect to changing lactate concentrations. This figure further demonstrates the dramatic increase in anoxic LDH Vmax as well as the decrease in anoxic LDH Km lactate.
