Background: Galactose Oxidase

Fusarium graminearum galactose oxidase (GalOx) is an extracellular copper-containing oxidoreductase. Its catalytic site contains a free radical ligand formed by covalently cross-linked cysteine and tyrosine side chains coordinating to a copper center (1, 2, 3). GalOx catalyzes the two-electron oxidation of the C6-hydroxyl group of D-galactose as well as a range of primary alcohols to the corresponding aldehydes with concomitant reduction of oxygen to hydrogen peroxide. GalOx is strictly regioselective on primary alcohols and displays remarkable stereospecificity in its reaction with sugars, showing activity only with galactose but not glucose. Because of this specificity, GalOx is used to determine lactose levels in biological fluids, human milk and dairy products and examine histochemistry of mucus-secreting cells (4, 5). Furthermore, GalOx has been used to modify cell surface carbohydrates for cell labeling and histochemical staining and induce interferon in human lymphocyte culture (2, 6). GalOx is viewed as a competitive and cost-effective catalyst compared to chemical conversion for manufacturing fine chemicals in pharmaceutical and food industry. For example, GalOx is used for conversion of D-galactose to food-grade cross-linking agents (7).
