The four types of genetic variants of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) found so far in the Indian populations surveyed by starch-gel electrophoresis of haemolysates are described, pointing out their characteristic features. Two of these variant types, namely, 'Calcutta-1' and 'Madras-1, were reported earlier. The other two discovered subsequently and named trivially as 'Calcutta-2' and 'Delhi-1 are now reported for the first time. A comparison between the four LDH variants found in India and those by others outside India has also been drawn.
