The Gly-Kit platform is a library of 380 diverse “Family 1” UDP-glucose-dependent glycosyltransferase enzymes (UGTs) plus associated screening, analytical and lab scale production protocols (“Family 1” denotes glycosyltransferases that will glycosylate small molecules).
All the enzymes in Gly-Kit are found in plants (which have diverse UGTs to work with the diverse range of small molecules that occur in plants or their environment). The kit contains enzymes from all known Family 1 UGT sub-families and sub-sub-families and from a huge set of evolutionarily diverse plants.
The majority of the enzymes will be able to add glucose to small molecule substrates with relevant functional groups. Some enzymes will work with other sugars (such as xylose, rhamnose, galactose or glucuronic acid). We can advise you on the best path for specific sugars.
