DE   L-glycol dehydrogenase.
CA   An L-glycol + NAD(P)(+) = a 2-hydroxycarbonyl compound + NAD(P)H.
CC   -!- The 2-hydroxycarbonyl compound formed can be further oxidized to a
CC       vicinal dicarbonyl compound.
CC   -!- In the reverse direction, vicinal diketones, glyceraldehyde, glyoxal,
CC       methylglyoxal, 2-oxo-hydroxyketones and 2-ketoacid esters can be
CC       reduced.
