Background: Infant gut-associated bifidobacteria possess lacto-N-biosidase, which releases lacto-N-biose I (LNB) from human milk oligosaccharides.

Results: The crystal structures of lacto-N-biosidase complexed with LNB and LNB-thiazoline were determined.

Conclusion: The intermediate analogue complex allows the proposal of a conformational reaction coordinate.

Significance: The structures of a key enzyme in the colonization of human commensal bacteria provided its structural basis and insight into the development of inhibitors.
