The glycosylation of five different flavonols, fisetin, quercetin, myricetin, kaempferol, and 3-hydroxyflavone, was achieved by applying YjiC. 3-Hydroxyflavone was selected as a probe for in vitro glycorandomization of all flavonols using diverse nucleotide diphosphate-D/L-sugars. This study unlocked the possibilities of the glycodiversification of flavonols and the generation of novel compounds as future therapeutics.
