Accepted name: (R,R)-butanediol dehydrogenase
Reaction: (R,R)-butane-2,3-diol + NAD+ = (R)-acetoin + NADH + H+
Other name(s): butyleneglycol dehydrogenase; D-butanediol dehydrogenase; D-(–)-butanediol dehydrogenase; butylene glycol dehydrogenase; diacetyl (acetoin) reductase; D-aminopropanol dehydrogenase; 1-amino-2-propanol dehydrogenase; 2,3-butanediol dehydrogenase; D-1-amino-2-propanol dehydrogenase; (R)-diacetyl reductase; (R)-2,3-butanediol dehydrogenase; D-1-amino-2-propanol:NAD+ oxidoreductase; 1-amino-2-propanol oxidoreductase; aminopropanol oxidoreductase
Systematic name: (R,R)-butane-2,3-diol:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: Also converts diacetyl into acetoin with NADH as reductant.
