Formatted abstract
A careful choice of the reaction conditions (solvent, enzyme, acylating agent) allowed an efficient regioselective acylation of N-acetylhexosamines. 6-O-Acyl derivatives of 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-D-glucopyranose (GlcNAc), 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-D-galactopyranose (GalNAc) and 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-D- mannopyranose (ManNAc) have been isolated from regioselective esterifications catalysed by the protease subtilisin in CH3CN-DMSO 8:2 in good yields.
