Observation of the chemical structure of fructooligosaccharide produced by an enzyme fromAureobasidium sp. ATCC 20524

Abstract

The chemical structure of the oligosaccharide produced from sucrose by an enzyme extracted fromAureobasidium sp. ATCC 20524 was observed. The GC-MS analysis by methylation indicated that this oligosaccharide is composed of 2-linked, 1,2-linked fructose and 1-linked glucose. The [13C]-NMR spectrum indicated that the 1,2-linked glycosidic linkages of fructose of this oligosaccharide areβ, and the 1-linked glycosidic linkages of fructose are α. This investigation suggested that this oligosaccharide is isokestose.
