Abstract: The solubilized glycosyltransferases which catalyse the biosynthesis of Salmonella anatum arid S. kentucky O-specific polysaccharides were partially purified by HPLC on Superose 12. Two mannosyl transferases from S. kentucky were separated by gel chromatography; these transferases were found useful for chemical-enzymic synthesis of polyprenylpyrophosphate derivatives of trisaccharides Tal-Man-Gal and Man-Tal-Gal.
