New Paper in "Angewandte Chemie"
Our paper on a new glycan array-based method for the identification and characterization of plant glycosyltransferases has been accepted in Angewandte Chemie. Using azido-functionalized nucleotide sugar donors, we were able to visualize the activity of various glycosyltransferases directly on a glycan array. We are looking forward to screen many more plant glycosyltransferases in the coming years using this high-throughput method. Congratulations Colin!
