The stability of the nucleotide analogs depends on the glycosidic bond conformation, their position of occurrence, and the quadruplex fold.
Action of NAGLU resulted in hydrolysis of the glycosidic bond in NAGLU-S forming the aglycone that was the enzyme product (NAGLU-P).
The main components of these compounds are glycosides that consist of a glycon part and an aglycon part connected through a glycosidic bond that can be created by a glycosylation reaction.

Beginning with glycosidic bond formation, the contributors provide the most recent developments in stereoselectivity and therapeutic relevance for advanced biochemistry students, as well as research scientists in the field of biosynthesis, biopathways and vaccination studies.
Whereas a glycosidic bond made between [alpha] anomers of glucose is relatively easily hydrolyzed by mammalian enzymes, a glycosidic bond made between [beta] anomers of glucose can only be hydrolyzed by the enzymes made by microbes such as those inhabiting the digestive tract of livestock.
