A single N-linked oligosaccharide at either of the two normal sites is sufficient for transport of vesicular stomatitis virus G protein to the cell surface.


We investigated the role of glycosylation in intracellular transport and cell surface expression of the vesicular stomatitis virus glycoprotein (G) in cells expressing G protein from cloned cDNA. The individual contributions of the two asparagine-linked glycans of G protein to cell surface expression were assessed by site-directed mutagenesis of the coding… (More)
