Abstract

A new alpha-L-fucosidase was partially purified from the culture broth of Penicillium multicolor, which was available commercially as a freeze dried powder by the name of Lactase-P. This enzyme catalysed the transglycosylation of fucose residue of p-nitrophenyl-alpha-L-fucopyranoside to give alpha-L-Fuc-(1-->3)-D-Glc or alpha-L-Fuc-(1-->3)-D-GlcNAc regioselectively. This enzyme was more stable in the organic co-solvents than the alpha-fucosidase from Aspergillus niger, which was also proposed previously by us as an enzyme to produce fucosyl oligosaccharides.
