Isomelezitose formation by glucansucrases.


Several glucansucrases were surveyed for their ability to produce isomelezitose, a trisaccharide with the structure α-D-glucopyranosyl (1 → 6) β-D-fructofuranosyl (2 ↔ 1) α-D-glucopyranoside. Nearly all strains tested, with one exception, produced at least trace levels of isomelezitose. Yields were low but significant, ranging from less than 1% to… (More)
