The rate of bulk flow from the endoplasmic reticulum to the cell surface.

Tripeptides containing the acceptor sequence for Asn-linked glycosylation (Asn-X-Ser/Thr) were added to CHO and HepG2 cells. The tripeptides were glycosylated in the ER and then secreted into the medium, via the Golgi complex in which the oligosaccharide chains were processed. The half-time for secretion, approximately 10 min, was faster than that of known… CONTINUE READING
