Abstract

An efficient 2′-O- to 3′-C-β-D-glucosidic bond rearrangement on the dihydrochalcone phloretin to convert phlorizin into nothofagin was achieved by combining complementary O-glycosyltransferase (OGT) and C-glycosyltransferase (CGT) activities in a one-pot transformation containing catalytic amounts of uridine 5′-diphosphate (UDP). Two separate enzymes or a single engineered dual-specific O/CGT were applied. Overall (quantitative) conversion occurred in two steps via intermediary UDP–glucose and phloretin.
