Aldehyde dehydrogenase from bovine liver mitochondria has been crystallized using the sitting drop method of vapor diffusion at 22 °C. The crystals formed from solutions containing, 40 mm-sodium citrate, 1 mm-NAD+ and 21% to 24% polyethylene glycol 3400 (pH 5·3 to 5·5). X-ray diffraction data collected from these crystals indicate that the crystals belong to the orthorhombic space group P212121 with cell dimensions of a = 153·7 A ̊, b = 159·37 A ̊ and c = 101·45 A ̊. The crystals diffract to at least 2·9 Å and a tetramer may comprise the asymmetric unit.
