The translated calcitonin receptor (CTR) complementary DNA sequences contain potential N-linked glycosylation sites within the extracellular N-terminus. We investigated the relative molecular mass (M(r)) and degree of N-linked glycosylation of five cloned CTRs (pig, rat C1a, rat C1b, human I1-ve, and human I1+ve), together with the pig hypothalamic CTR, to analyze the potential contribution of carbohydrate moieties to the molecular identity of these receptors. Receptors were cross-linked to… CONTINUE READING
