A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Sucrose-utilizing transglucosidases are valued enzymatic tools for the diversification of carbohydrate-based molecules. Among them, recombinant amylosucrase from Neisseria polysaccharea is a glucansucrase that naturally catalyzes the synthesis of an amyloselike polymer as well as the transglucosylation of exogenous hydroxylated acceptors. A semi-rational engineering approach was recently undertaken to re-design the enzyme active site and adapt it to the glucosylation of a nonnatural acceptor, the allyl 2-N-acetyl-2-deoxy-α-D-glucopyranoside (α-D-GlcpNAc-OAll), to produce a key building block in the chemo-enzymatic synthesis of Shigella flexneri 1b serotype O-antigen repeating unit. This prior work clearly showed the beneficial effect of single amino acid mutations at two positions, 228 and 290, on the recognition of the acceptor by amylosucrase. On the basis of these first results, a library of about 8,000 amylosucrase variants combining mutations at these two positions was constructed by saturation mutagenesis. The library was pre-screened using a novel pH-sensitive colorimetric screening method for the detection of sucrose-utilizing amylosucrase variants, thereby reducing by about 95% the size of the library to be subsequently screened for acceptor glucosylation. Active clones (5% of the initial library) were then screened for acceptor recognition, leading to the isolation of 20 variants of potential interest for the production of the target disaccharide, the α-D-Glcp-(1→4)-α-D-GlcpNAc.
