AglB, catalyzing the oligosaccharyl transferase step of the archaeal N-glycosylation process, is essential in the thermoacidophilic crenarchaeon Sulfolobus acidocaldarius


Sulfolobus acidocaldarius, a thermo-acidophilic crenarchaeon which grows optimally at 76 °C and pH 3, exhibits an astonishing high number of N-glycans linked to the surface (S-) layer proteins. The S-layer proteins as well as other surface-exposed proteins are modified via N-glycosylation, in which the oligosaccharyl transferase AglB catalyzes the final… (More)
