Researchers design an enzyme to synthetize carbohydrates

Sugar or carbohydrate synthesis is important for the development of diagnostic tests, vaccines and new drugs. In a study co-led by a team of the Department of Inorganic and Organic Chemistry and the Institute of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry of the UB (IQTCUB), together with a research group of biological chemistry of the University of Oxford, have synthetized carbohydrates with enzymes through a reaction that was not much studied so far on these biomolecules and which creates few by-products.
