Wang and coworkers160 also characterized a bacterial 1,3-galactosyltransferase (WbiP) from E. coli O127. Escherichia coli O127 belongs to the O serogroup of enteropathogenic E. 161 Escherichia coli O127 was reported to possess high human blood group H (O) activity. The elucidation of the chemical structure of the cell-surface O-antigen162 confirmed that E. coli O127 mimicked the expression of human blood group H antigen (Scheme 35). The O-antigen biosynthetic gene cluster contains multiple genes needed for the assembly of E.

Cst II is an inverting bifunctional -2,3/2,8 sialyltransferase from Campylobacter jejuni. It uses cytidine 59monophosphate (CMP) -D-sialic acid as a donor substrate and transfers the sialic acid moiety with net inversion of anomeric configuration to the 39 hydroxyl of terminal lactose-containing acceptors (Scheme 38(a)). Subsequently, Cst II will use this newly formed 39-sialyl lactose product as an acceptor and transfer another sialic acid moiety to the 80 hydroxyl to form a tetrasaccharide. To determine whether this Scheme 36 WbiP-catalyzed reaction and HPLC identification of products.

The glycosynthase approach is poised to be further investigated for its application to the large-scale production of oligosaccharides. Results obtained to date suggest a promising future for these new biocatalysts. Further directed evolution as well as discovery of new glycosidases with different specificities will expand the scope of glycosynthases. 1 Sugar Nucleotide Biosynthetic Pathway The structures of oligosaccharides and glycoconjugates can be quite complex; however, the number of important saccharide sequences is limited, and they are made of monosaccharide building blocks.
