Glycoproteins isolated from hen oviduct contain highly branched asparagine-linked oligosaccharides (N-glycans). Six N-acetylglucosaminyltransferases (GlcNAc-T I, II, III, IV, V, and VI) are involved in initiating the synthesis of these branches, as indicated below: (formula; see text) where R is GlcNAc beta 1----4(+/-Fuc alpha 1----6)GlcNAcAsn-X. HPLC has been used to study the substrate specificities of these GlcNAc-T and the sequential pathways involved in the biosynthesis of highly branched… CONTINUE READING
