in complex with substrate meso-2,3-butanediol and inhibitor 2-mercaptoethanol, to 1.7 A resolution. The overall strucuture is similar to that of other short chain dehydrogenase/reductase enzymes, the NAD+ binding site, and the positions of catalytic residues Ser139, Tyr152, and Lys156 are also conserved. 2-Mercaptoethanol forms hydrogens bonds with residues Gln 140 and Gly 183 close to the active site, which are important but not sufficient for distiguishing stereoisomerism of a chiral substrate
