Terpenoid glycosides are typically synthesised by chemical routes since few biocatalysts have been identified that recognise these chemical scaffolds. In this study, a platform of 107 recombinant glycosyltransferases (GTs), comprising the multigene family of small molecule GTs of Arabidopsis thaliana have been screened against a range of model terpenoids to identify those enzymes with high activity towards the acceptor compounds.
