Peptide:N-glycanase (PNGase) is the enzyme responsible for de-N-glycosylation of misfolded glycoproteins in the cytosol. Here, we report the molecular identification and characterization of PNGase (png-1, F56G4.5) from Caenorhabditis elegans. This enzyme released both high mannose- and complex-type N-glycans from glycopeptides and denatured glycoproteins… CONTINUE READING
