Until recently, glycoproteins had only been described in eukaryotes. However, advances in detection methods and genome analyses have allowed the discovery of N-linked or O-linked glycoproteins, similar to those found in eukaryotes, in some bacterial species. These prokaryotic glycoproteins play roles in adhesion, solubility, formation of protein complexes, protection from protein degradation, and changes in antigenicity. Periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis secretes virulence proteins… CONTINUE READING
