Malectin forms a complex with ribophorin I for enhanced association with misfolded glycoproteins.

Abstract

Malectin is an endoplasmic reticulum-resident lectin, which recognizes di-glucosylated Glc(2)Man(9)GlcNAc(2) (G2M9) N-glycans on newly synthesized glycoproteins. We previously demonstrated that malectin preferentially associates with misfolded glycoproteins and inhibits their secretion (Chen, Y., Hu, D., Yabe, R., Tateno, H., Qin, S. Y., Matsumoto, N… (More)
