  • Rather recently it has become clear that prokaryotes (Archaea and Bacteria) are able to glycosylate proteins. A literature survey revealed the different types of glycoproteins. They include mainly surface layer (S-layer) proteins, flagellins, and polysaccharide-degrading enzymes. Only in a few cases is structural information available. Many different structures have been observed that display much more variation than that observed in eukaryotes. A few studies have given evidence for the… CONTINUE READING
