Enzyme-catalyzed synthesis of carbohydrates.

Journal Article (Review;Journal Article)

Several new enzymes of utility in the synthesis of carbohydrates have been reported during the past year. Additionally, the utility of several well studied enzymes has been expanded. Pyruvate aldolases, aldolase abzymes and both wild-type and mutated glycosidases have found increasing acceptance in the community. Preliminary reports suggest that thermophilic enzymes may possess significant advantages compared to their mesophilic counterparts for carbohydrate synthesis.
