Abstract:The role of N-linked glycosylation in processing and intracellular transport of rubella virus glycoprotein E2 has been studied by expressing glycosylation mutants of E2 in COS cells. A panel of E2 glycosylation mutants were generated by oligonucleotide-directed mutagenesis. Each of the three potential N-linked glycosylation sites was eliminated separately as well as in combination with the other two sites. Expression of the E2 mutant proteins in COS cells indicated that in rubella virus M33 strain, all three s…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
