Therapeutic actions of a significant number of drugs today rely on the presence of carbohydrate moiety. Combinations of carbohydrates and other specific molecules, known as glycosides, comprise a wide range of drug types. To meet these aspects remarkable advances have been made in recent years in exploiting transglycosylation activity for oligosaccharide and glycoconjugate synthesis.
