Enzymatic synthesis of two salicin analogues by reaction of salicyl alcohol with Bacillus macerans cyclomaltodextrin glucanyltransferase and Leuconostoc mesenteroides B-742CB dextransucrase.

Beta-Salicin is a naturally occurring glycoside found in the bark of poplar and willow trees. Ancient man used it as an analgesic and antipyretic. It has a D-glucopyranose unit attached by a beta-linkage to the phenolic hydroxyl of salicyl alcohol. Two new salicin analogues have been enzymatically synthesized by transglycosylation reactions: (a) by the reaction of Bacillus macerans cyclomaltodextrin glucanyltransferase with cyclomaltohexaose and salicyl alcohol, followed by reactions with alpha amylase and glucoamylase to give D-glucopyranose attached by an alpha-linkage to the phenolic hydroxyl of salicyl alcohol as the major product, alpha-salicin; and (b) by the reaction of Leuconostoc mesenteroides B-742CB dextransucrase with sucrose and salicyl alcohol, followed by reactions with dextranase and glucoamylase to give alpha-d-glucopyranose attached to the primary alcohol hydroxyl of salicyl alcohol as the major product, alpha-isosalicin.[1]
