Structural characterization of mixed-linkage α-glucans produced by mutants of Lactobacillus reuteri TMW 1.106 dextransucrase.

Dextrans and other bacterial α-glucans are versatile and structurally diverse polysaccharides which can be enzymatically synthesized by using glucansucrases. By substituting certain amino acids in the active site of these enzymes, the structure of the synthesized polysaccharides can be modified. In this study, such amino acid substitutions were applied (single and combined) to the dextransucrase from Lactobacillus reuteri TMW 1.106 and the structures of the synthesized polysaccharides were subsequently characterized in detail. Besides methylation analysis, α-glucans were hydrolyzed by several glycoside hydrolases and the liberated oligosaccharides were identified by comparison to standard compounds or by isolation and NMR spectroscopic characterization. Furthermore, two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy was used to analyze the untreated polysaccharides. The results demonstrated that structurally different α-glucans were formed, for example different highly O4-branched dextrans or several reuteran-like polymers with varying fine structures. Consequently, mutant Lactobacillus reuteri TMW 1.106 dextransucrases can be used to form structurally unique polysaccharides.Hide Abstract
