(R,R)-butanediol dehydrogenase

Index (R,R)-butanediol dehydrogenase

In enzymology, a (R,R)-butanediol dehydrogenase is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are (R,R)-butane-2,3-diol and NAD+, whereas its 3 products are (R)-acetoin, NADH, and H+. [1]
