Glycosylation reactions in Plasmodium falciparum, Toxoplasma gondii, and Trypanosoma brucei brucei probed by the use of synthetic peptides.

Abstract

Synthetic peptides were used to probe O- and N-glycosylation reactions in cell-free systems of the parasitic protozoa Plasmodium falciparum, Toxoplasma gondii, and Trypanosoma brucei brucei. O-Glycosylation of the peptide Pro-Tyr-Thr-Val-Val was observed with lysates from all organisms. However, the spectrum of sugars transferred from their respective… (More)
