Abstract: Riboflavinyl glycosides were synthesized enzymatically using amyloglucosidase isolated from Rhizopus mold and -glucosidase from sweet almond to produce more water soluble riboflavinyl derivatives. The reaction conditions were optimized in terms of incubation period, pH, buffer, enzyme and substrate concentrations. With D-glucose, D-galactose, D-mannose, D-ribose, sucrose, maltose and lactose, both the enzymes gave yields in the range of 5-40%. Amyloglucosidase catalysis gave C1 and C1 glycosides of D-glucose, D-galactose, D-mannose, D-ribose, maltose, C6-O-arylated products of D-glucose and maltose and C1-O-arylated product of sucrose. However, -glucosidase gave C1-glucoside, C1-lactoside and C1 and C1 glycosides of D-galactose and D-mannose. Riboflavinyl glycosides showed angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitory activities, with IC50 values in the 0.8±0.04-2.08±0.1 mM range.
