  • The histo-blood group antigens, ABO, H, and Lewis, are formed by the action of glycosyltransferases to attach sugar molecules to disaccharide precursors.

  • Addition of fucose to these disaccharide precursors creates the H antigen, and further modification to the H antigen by glycosyltransferases leads to synthesis of the blood group antigens encoded by the ABO ( "blood type") gene.

  • Most of them are oligosaccharides, synthesized by glycosyltransferases.

  • Candidate genes for enzymes functioning in the biosynthesis of cyanogenic glucosides (cytochrome P450 and family 1 glycosyltransferases) were identified based on sequence length, number of copies and presence/absence of close homologs in D. melanogaster, B. mori and the cyanogenic butterfly Heliconius.

  • The subsequent steps in glycyrrhizin biosynthesis are believed to involve a series of oxidative reactions at the C-11 and C-30 positions, followed by glycosyl transfers to the C-3 hydroxyl group; however, no genes encoding relevant oxidases or glycosyltransferases have been identified.
