Modulation of protein structure and function by asparagine-linked glycosylation

Chem Biol. 1996 Oct;3(10):803-12. doi: 10.1016/s1074-5521(96)90064-2.


In eukaryotic cells, many enzymes are devoted to the construction of the complex glycan structures that decorate secreted and cell-surface proteins. Recent studies have begun to elucidate the effects of asparagine-linked glycosylation on protein folding and on the structure and function of mature glycoproteins.
