ProGlyProt ID
Organism Information
Organism Name
Myxococcus xanthus
Family: Myxococcaceae
Suborder: Cystobacterineae
Order: Myxococcales
Class: Deltaproteobacteria or Deltabacteria
Division or phylum: "Proteobacteria"
Protein Information
Protein Name
VGP (74 kDa)
Subcellular Location
Membrane protein (peripheral)
Its surface location and abundance suggest that VGP plays a role in vegetative swarming, because it appears primarily during growth of the organism and is lost in the course of development. May play an important role in the social behavior.
Glycosylation Status
Glycosylation Type
Information currently not available with us.
Technique(s) used for Glycosylation Detection
PAS-staining and Dolichos lectin affinity binding.
Glycan Information
Glycan Annotation
Carbohydrate moiety (~13.5% of the weight of the VGP) is primarily comprised of neutral sugars and smaller amounts of hexosamines and uronic acids. Terminal N-acetylgalactosamine residues.
