Background3-Hydroxybutyrate Dehydrogenase Type 2 belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family. 3-Hydroxybutyrate Dehydrogenase Type 2 may play an important role in the peripheral utilization of 3-hydroxybutyrate. The cytoplasmic localization with its high ratio of oxidized NAD+, the NAD+ dependence and the kinetic parameters of 3-Hydroxybutyrate Dehydrogenase Type 2 make it suitable to conbert high levels of circulating 3-hydroxybutyrate into acetoacetate.
