Production of epigallocatechin gallate 7-O-alpha-D-glucopyranoside (EGCG-G1) using the glucosyltransferase from Leuconostoc mesenteroides.

Epigallocatechin gallate 7-O-alpha-D-glucopyranoside (EGCG-G1), as a novel compound with a higher water solubility and stability and similar antioxidant effect when compared with epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), was produced from sucrose as a glucose donor and EGCG as a glucose acceptor by a glucosyltransferase from Leuconostoc mesenteroides. The pH and… CONTINUE READING
