A fluorescence assay for probing the activity and stereoselectivity of transaldolases, which catalyze the stereoselective aldol coupling between dihydroxyacetone and α-hydroxyaldehydes, is demonstrated. It is based on synthetic probes that undergo selective retroaldolization with the enzymes to form a fluorescent product. These probes comprise the simple fructose analogue 1 and the stereoisomeric pair 2/3, which is used to measure the fructo/tagato-stereoselectivity of transaldolases.
