Glycan Information
Glycan Annotation
Glycan represents 2.1% (wt/wt) of the molecule. It is composed almost entirely of xylose (89.6%). Glucose (6.9%), mannose (2.2%), and rhamnose (1.3%) are present in small amounts. 16 xylose residues and one or two glucose or other six-carbon sugar have been calculated per DgpC molecule. Glycosyl linkage analysis has shown that the xylose molecules are largely linked 1,2 and 1,4.

Additional Comments
Expression of Dgp glycoproteins is phase-variable in the normal environment of bacteria.
