Enzymatic cascade for one-pot synthesis of DHNX from xylan and DHN. The endoxylanase rXynM hydrolyzes the polysaccharide releasing a mixture of XOS. The β-xylosidase rBxTW1 transfers xylopyranose units from the non-reducing end of the XOS to DHN by transglycosylation, forming DHNX. By this approach, XOS can be consumed up to the reducing-end residue or a branching point (byproducts). Reducing ends are underlined in black
