KDN-gp, which is the unique glycoprotein of the rainbow trout egg envelope, was shown to have a small amount of N-linked oligosaccharide units in addition to a large number of O-linked glycan units. Structural analysis based on chemical analysis in combination with 400 MHz 1H NMR spectroscopy revealed the presence of fully KDNosylated bi- and triantennary complex-type oligosaccharide chains, mostly fucosylated at the innermost GlcNAc residue and bisected by the GlcNAc residue linked beta 1-->4… CONTINUE READING
