Abstract

The enzyme catalysed esterification of starch and fatty acids with terminal triple bonds is described. This material can be used as an acceptor for azide containing molecules, through azide/alkyne cycloaddition. The potential is illustrated by the production of fluorescently-labelled starch, and a biotinylated derivative which can bind streptavidin.
