Glycosyltransferases in Protein Glycosylation

  • Odd Nygård
  • Peter Westermann


Glycosylation of glycoproteins in eucaryotic cells is initiated on nascent polypeptide chains in the endoplasmic reticulum and completed post-translationally in the lumen of the Golgi apparatus. Recent interest in the details of protein glycosylation stems from our presently incomplete knowledge of the structure, functions and mechanisms of biosynthesis of oligosaccharides in glycoproteins and other glycoconjugates.
