Synthesis of branched cyclomalto-oligosaccharides using Pseudomonas isoamylase.


Branched cyclomalto-oligosaccharides (cyclodextrins) were synthesised from cyclomalto-oligosaccharides and maltose or maltotriose through the reverse action of Pseudomonas isoamylase. The reaction rate was greater with maltotriose than with maltose, and with increasing size of the cyclomalto-oligosaccharide (cG6 less than cG7 less than cG8). Maltotriose is effective as both a side-chain donor and acceptor, and three isomers of 6-O-alpha-maltotriosylmaltotriose (branched G6) were formed through mutual condensation, but maltose was effective only as a side-chain donor. Each branched cyclomalto-oligosaccharide and G6 was purified by liquid chromatography, and their structures were determined by chemical, enzymic, and 13C-n.m.r. spectroscopic analyses.
