EC 1.1.2.5     
Accepted name: D-lactate dehydrogenase (cytochrome c-553)
Reaction: (R)-lactate + 2 ferricytochrome c-553 = pyruvate + 2 ferrocytochrome c-553 + 2 H+
Systematic name: (R)-lactate:cytochrome-c-553 2-oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme from the sulfate-reducing bacterium Desulfovibrio vulgaris can also act on (R)-2-hydroxybutanoate.
