A new N-benzenesulfonyl-based ionic-liquid mass spectroscopy label (I-Tag2) for covalent attachment to substrates has been prepared. I-Tag2 was used to monitor oligosaccharide elongation and serve as a purification handle. Starting from chemically synthesized I-Tag2-labelled N-acetyl glucosamine (GlcNAc) 1, I-Tag2-LacNAc (Galβ(1-4)GlcNAc) 2 and I-Tag2-Lewis(X) (Galβ(1-4)[Fucα(1-3)]GlcNAc) 3, which are oligosaccharides of biological relevance, were enzymatically prepared. The apparent kinetic parameters for the enzyme catalysed transformations with β-1,4-galactosyltransferase (β-1,4-GalT) and fucosyltransferase VI (FucT VI) were measured by LC-MS demonstrating the applicability and versatility of the new I-Tags in enzymatic transformations with glycosyltransferases.
