Fluorinated Thomsen-Friedenreich (T) antigens were synthesized efficiently from chemically produced fluorinated monosaccharides using a highly efficient one-pot two-enzyme chemoenzymatic approach containing a galactokinase and a d-galactosyl-β1-3-N-acetyl-d-hexosamine phosphorylase. These fluorinated T-antigens were further sialylated to form fluorinated ST-antigens using a one-pot two-enzyme system containing a CMP-sialic acid synthetase and an α-2-3-sialyltransferase.
