Two N-linked glycans are required to maintain the transport activity of the bile salt export pump (ABCB11) in MDCK II cells.

The aim of this study was to determine the role of N-linked glycosylation in protein stability, intracellular trafficking, and bile acid transport activity of the bile salt export pump [Bsep (ATP-binding cassette B11)]. Rat Bsep was fused with yellow fluorescent protein, and the following mutants, in which Asn residues of putative glycosylation sites (Asn… CONTINUE READING
