Germin was previously shown to contain covalently bonded and adventitious glycans. The object of the present investigation was to characterize the two types of glycan. The presence of N- but not O-glycans in germin is indicated by the biosynthesis of altered forms, including an unglycosylated form of germin when wheat embryos are germinated in the presence of tunicamycin. After treating the doublet of germin pentamers (G and G') from normally germinated embryos with beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase… CONTINUE READING
