A novel d-galactosyl-β1-3-N-acetyl-d-hexosamine phosphorylase cloned from Bifidobacterium infantis (BiGalHexNAcP) was used with a recombinant E. coli K-12 galactokinase (GalK) for efficient one-pot two-enzyme synthesis of T-antigens, galacto-N-biose (Galβ1-3GalNAc), lacto-N-biose (Galβ1-3GlcNAc), and their derivatives.
