"N-glycan decorations and function of KORRIGAN1 in plant secretory system"
Protein N-glycosylation is a ubiquitous post-translational modification in eukaryotic cells. It starts in endoplasmic reticulum and adds progressive modification to glycoproteins as they travel through the secretory system. The later stages of N-glycan modifications that occur in the Golgi apparatus are diverse among animals, fungi, and plants and produce complex N-glycans of unique structures. Previously we have discovered functional link between complex N-glycan biosynthesis and in vivo activity of KORRIGAN1 (KOR1) protein in the cellulose biosynthesis pathway. I will share recent knowledge obtained using molecular genetic and cell-imaging analysis of KOR1 dynamics and their relation to its N-glycosylation status.
