Galactose oxidase (GOase) was shown to oxidize several C2/C3 fluorinated galactose analogs. Interestingly, the enzyme was able to distinguish between the 2,3-tetrafluorinated galactose and its epimeric glucose analog, and this represents the first reported biotransformation of a heavily fluorinated sugar.
