Substrate specificity of FUT8 and chemoenzymatic synthesis of core-fucosylated asymmetric N-glycans

Author affiliations

Abstract

Substrate specificity studies of human FUT8 using 77 structurally-defined N-glycans as acceptors showed a strict requirement towards the α1,3-mannose branch, but a great promiscuity towards the α1,6-mannose branch. Accordingly, a chemoenzymatic strategy was developed for the efficient synthesis of core-fucosylated asymmetric N-glycans.
