SUSY – Sucrose Synthase as
Cost-Effective Mediator of Glycosylation Reactions
Time span: September 2013 to August 2017

GALAB participates in the SUSY project funded by the EU with 5 million Euro. During the next four years the project partners of research, universities and companies want to develop efficient processes for the production of glycosylated compounds. Renowned examples of such products are oligosaccharides in breast milk acting as prebiotics and glycosylated flavonoids with improved stability and solubility.
The objective of this project is to optimise the enzymatic processes of glycosyl transferases (GT), saccharose synthase (SuSy) and fructane sucrose (FS) for the efficient and economic production on an industrial scale.
