Enzymatic formation and cleavage of the bond between two sugars or between a sugar and another group can occur by hydrolysis to give the free sugar (glycosidases or glycoside hydrolases), by transglycosylation to give a new glycoside (transglycosidases), by phosphorolysis to give the sugar-1-phosphate (phosphorylases) or by elimination to give unsaturated sugar products (lyases). The principal enzymes that catalyze glycoside synthesis are nucleotide phosphosugar-dependent glycosyltransferases.
