Isomerization of deoxyhexoses: green bioproduction of 1-deoxy-D-tagatose from L-fucose and of 6-deoxy-D-tagatose from D-fucose using Enterobacter agglomerans strain 221e

Abstract:

1-Deoxy-d-tagatose was produced by the hydrogenation of 6-deoxy-l-galactose (l-fucose) to l-fucitol followed by oxidation with Enterobacter agglomerans 221e; a similar sequence on d-fucose afforded 6-deoxy-d-tagatose. Thus, the polylol dehydrogenase recognizes the d-galacto-configuration of both d-fucitol and l-fucitol. The procedures were conducted in water and show the power of green, environmentally friendly biotechnology in the preparation of new monosaccharides with a potential for novel...
