ProGlyProt ID
AU148
Organism Information
Organism Name
Thermoplasma acidophilum ATCC 25905
Domain
Archaea
Classification
Family: Thermoplasmataceae
Order: Thermoplasmatales
Class: Thermoplasmata
Division or phylum: "Euryarchaeota"
Taxonomic ID (NCBI)
 
 
Protein Information
Protein Name
152 kDa membrane glycoprotein
Subcellular Location
Membrane
Function
May contribute to rigidity of the membrane and cation binding. The existence of membrane glycoprotein in wall-less Thermoplasma acidophilum may provide a protective coat for plasma membrane.
 
 
Glycosylation Status
Glycosylation Type
N(Asn)- linked
Technique(s) used for Glycosylation Detection
PAS staining and ConA-Sepharose column chromatography, and deglycosylation
 
 
Glycan Information
Glycan Annotation
GlcNAc-Asn linkage. Branched glycan largely based on mannose subunits yet also containing glucose and galactose moieties.
