This paper delves into the degradability of quantum channels, with a specific focus on high-dimensional extensions of qubit depolarizing channels in low-noise regimes. We build upon the foundation of $\eta$-approximate degradable channels, as established by Sutter et al. and Leditzky et al., to introduce and examine the Modified Landau-Streater (MLS) channels. These channels expand upon the qubit depolarizing and the recently proposed modified Werner-Holevo channels by Roofeh and Karimipour, extending them to higher-dimensional Hilbert spaces (with dimension $d=2j+1$, where $j$ are positive half-integers). Our investigation centers on their conformity to the $O(\varepsilon^2)$ degradability pattern, aligning with and extending Leditzky et al.'s findings in the $d=2$ case. By replacing the SU($2$) generators with SU($d$) in our treatment, we may explore the potential inclusion of generalized Gell-Mann matrices in future research. Our results enhance the understanding of super-additivity in quantum channels within the low-noise regime and lay the groundwork for future explorations into conditions and structures that could lead to $O(\varepsilon^2)$ degradability across a broader spectrum of quantum channels.
