Atypical sialylated N-glycan structures are attached to neuronal voltage-gated potassium channels.

Abstract

Mammalian brains contain relatively high amounts of common and uncommon sialylated N-glycan structures. Sialic acid linkages were identified for voltage-gated potassium channels, Kv3.1, 3.3, 3.4, 1.1, 1.2 and 1.4, by evaluating their electrophoretic migration patterns in adult rat brain membranes digested with various glycosidases. Additionally, their… (More)
