3)Gal]n, referred to as polylactosamine chains, are a common feature of elongated O-linked glycans. , addition of Lewis and ABH glycans motifs [78]) to both the terminal Gal and the sub-terminal GlcNAc, yielding many diverse linear and branching structures. 3 Termination of Glycan Chains Sialylation or fucosylation terminates chain extension and these residues are commonly found as the terminal monosaccharides in both N- and O-glycans. Further modifications of the glycans, including sulfation, methylation and phosphorylation, result in further heterogeneity in the range of structures possible.

This is achieved enzymatically, using an a-amidating enzyme (a-AE), which is itself produced by recombinant DNA technology using a CHO cell line. Amidation forms the subject matter of Chapter 10. Sulfation is a PTM that entails the covalent attachment of a sulfate (SO3À) group, usually via selected tyrosine residues within the protein backbone [17]. Sulfation is performed by a sulfotransferase mediated co/post-translational process, occurring in the trans Golgi network, and is predominantly associated with secretory and membrane proteins.
