Primary Research
Research Fields Enzyme and Carbohydrate Chemistry
Keywords Carbohydrate related enzyme, Glycosynthase
Research Topics
  • Our research interests are enzyme reaction mechanisms and enzyme engineering for synthesis of various oligosaccharides.

    1. Functional analysis of Carbohydrate related enzymes. Kinetic analysis of carbohydrate-active enzymes by using various substrates, such as polysaccharides, oligosaccharides, and synthetic substrates, respectively. We have analyzed catalytic mechanism of various glycoside hydrolases (GHs).

    2. Oligosaccharides synthesis using carbohydrate-active enzymes. Recently, we created new “Glycosynthase” from inverting GHs. This technique expanded enzymatic oligosaccharides synthesis by glycosyl fluoride and GHs.
