A major role of the Golgi apparatus in liver is the terminal glycosylation of secreted serum proteins and of plasma membrane glycoproteins. Galactosyltransferase is a membrane-bound Golgi enzyme that transfers galactose directly from uridine diphosphogalactose (UDP-Gal) to terminal N-acetylglucosamine groups of N-asparagine-linked glycoproteins during secretion. Sialytransferase then transfers sialic acid from cytidine monophosphosialic acid (CMP-NAN) to the newly added terminal galactose of… CONTINUE READING
