Glycosidase-catalysed synthesis of alpha-galactosyl epitopes important in xenotransplantation and toxin binding using the alpha-galactosidase from Penicillium multicolor
UNSPECIFIED. (1999) Glycosidase-catalysed synthesis of alpha-galactosyl epitopes important in xenotransplantation and toxin binding using the alpha-galactosidase from Penicillium multicolor. CHEMICAL COMMUNICATIONS (20). pp. 2065-2066. ISSN 1359-7345Full text not available from this repository.
The alpha-galactosidase from Penicillium multicolor catalyses highly regioselective galactosyl transfer on to mono- and di-saccharide acceptors that have a non-reducing terminal galactose unit to give products containing the alpha-D-Galp-(1 --> 3)-D-Galp epitope found on pig tissue and which is responsible for the hyperacute rejection response in xenotransplantation of pig organs into man.
