Our results on the use of Imidazolium-labeled (ITag-)glycosides to harness the glycosyltransferase activity directly from human breast milk without having to isolate specfic enzymes has been published in the journal Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry. Using this strategy a series of biologically relevant oligosaccharide analogs, ITag-LacNAc, ITag-Lewisx and ITag-Lewisa were prepared in a matter of days.

Well done Imke!
