Tyrosine sulfation of varicella-zoster virus envelope glycoprotein gpl.

Sulfation is a common post-translational modification of secreted and membrane proteins, with the sulfate attached to tyrosine residues or to glycan side-chains. I have shown that varicella-zoster virus (VZV) envelope glycoproteins gpI, gpII, and gpIII can be labeled with [35S]sulfate. The predominant VZV glycoprotein, gpI, was shown to be sulfated on… CONTINUE READING
