Structure of the oligosaccharyl transferase complex at 12 A resolution.

Oligosaccharyl transferase (OT) catalyzes the transfer of a lipid-linked oligosaccharide to the nascent polypeptide emerging from the translocon. Currently, there is no structural information on the membrane-embedded OT complex, which consists of eight different polypeptide chains. We report a 12 A resolution cryo-electron microscopy structure of OT from… CONTINUE READING
