Abstract

A novel β-galactosynthase-β-mannosynthase dual-activity of β-galactosidase from Aspergillus oryzae was uncovered, for the first time, using free monosaccharide substrates. The enzyme successfully converted galactose and mannose monomer sugars efficiently into Gal-β(1-6)-Gal and Man-β(1-6)-Man, respectively. The discovery could potentially revolutionize chemoenzymatic glycan and non-digestible oligosaccharide (NDO) syntheses. © 2016 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
