In living color: Many mammalian glycans associated with signaling receptors contain terminal or penultimate N-acetyllactosamine. A highly specific method for labeling this disaccharide on cell-surface glycoproteins of live cultured cells and zebrafish embryos is reported. The two-step chemoenzymatic approach involves in situ fucosylation followed by a bioorthogonal click reaction (see scheme; α(1,3)FucT=α(1,3)-fucosyltransferase).
