An enzyme labeling and screening strategy for the discovery of ligands selective in binding two structurally similar members of the aldo-keto reductase family of enzymes is reported. The resulting fluorescence microscope data obtained by screening a 74,088 member library led to the identification of selective ligands for aldose reductase (ALR2) and aldehyde reductase (ALR1). Resynthesis results validate the selectivity of these ligands.
