Glycosyl azides are shown to be efficient donors for β-galactosidases, β-glucosidases and α-mannosidases. Only α-galactosidases do not cleave the respective glycosyl azide 1 and, moreover, they exhibit competitive inhibition (especially α-galactosidase from Talaromyces flavus). High water solubility and ready synthesis of glycosyl azides enable transglycosylation reactions even with difficult acceptors like N-acetyl-D-mannosamine in good yields. The versatility of glycosyl azides was demonstrated in the synthesis of five disaccharides – two of them are described for the first time. All the reactions were highly regioselective, yielding β(1→6) isomers. β-Galactosidase from E. coli proved to have the best synthetic capabilities. The present study shows that glycosyl azides are a valuable alternative to common p-nitrophenyl glycoside donors and in many synthetic reactions.
