GlyProt: in silico glycosylation of proteins

Nucleic Acids Res. 2005 Jul 1;33(Web Server issue):W214-9. doi: 10.1093/nar/gki385.


GlyProt ( is a web-based tool that enables meaningful N-glycan conformations to be attached to all the spatially accessible potential N-glycosylation sites of a known three-dimensional (3D) protein structure. The probabilities of physicochemical properties such as mass, accessible surface and radius of gyration are calculated. The purpose of this service is to provide rapid access to reliable 3D models of glycoproteins, which can subsequently be refined by using more elaborate simulations and validated by comparing the generated models with experimental data.
