Asparagine-linked glycans (N-glycans) are crucial signals for protein folding, quality control, and endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-associated degradation (ERAD) in yeast and mammals. Although similar ERAD processes were reported in plants, little is known about their biochemical mechanisms, especially their relationships with N-glycans. Here, we show that a… CONTINUE READING
