The dextran like polymer GtfKg15 is formed using sucrose by the glucanotransferase GtfKg15 of Lactobacillus sakei strain Kg15. The branched compound contains mainly α(1→6) and a minor amount of α(1→3) linkages. Glucans produced by glucanotransferase enzymes are potentially prebiotic, stimulating the gastrointestinal tract.
