Archae (formerly Archaebacteria) comprise an entire kingdom of organisms placed halfway between prokaryotes and eucaryotes in evolution. This class of organisms lacks murein cell wall and is devoid of organelles, yet Archae synthesize and export N-linked and O-linked glycoproteins utilizing only the plasma membrane. Study of glycosylation systems in Archae… CONTINUE READING
