Abstract

This section mainly reviews β1,3-glycosyltransferases (β3GT), which transfer donor substrate sugars via a β1,3-linkage, and IGnTs, which transfer donor substrate sugars via a β1,6-linkage (Hennet 2002; Narimatsu 2004; Togayachi 2006). Information such as accession numbers of these β3GTs and IGnTs are shown in Table 1.
