Abstract

Two bacterial β1-4-galactosyltransferases, NmLgtB and Hp1-4GalT, exhibit promiscuous and complementary acceptor substrate specificity. They have been used in an efficient one-pot multienzyme system to synthesize LacNAc, lactose, and their derivatives including those containing negatively charged 6-O-sulfated GlcNAc and C2-substituted GlcNAc or Glc, from monosaccharide derivatives and inexpensive Glc-1-P.
