This paper describes the study of 3'-phosphoadenosine-5'-phosphosulfate (PAPS) regeneration from 3'-phosphoadenosine-5'-phosphate (PAP) for use in practical syntheses of carbohydrate sulfates which are catalyzed by sulfotransferases. Among the regeneration systems, the one with recombinant aryl sulfotransferase proved to be the most practical. This regeneration system was coupled with a sulfotransferase-catalyzed reaction, using a recombinant Nod factor sulfotransferase, for the synthesis of various oligosaccharide sulfates that were further glycosylated using glycosyl-transferases.
