Glycosyltransferases are involved in the biosyntheses of cell-wall polysaccharides, the addition of N-linked glycans to glycoproteins, and the attachment of sugar moieties to various small molecules such as hormones and flavonoids. In the past two years, substantial progress has been made in the identification and cloning of genes that encode glycosyltransferases. Moreover, analysis of the recently completed Arabidopsis genome sequence indicates the existence of several hundred additional genes encoding putative glycosyltransferases.
