In this review, we first critically examine the available data indicating the presence of cytoplasmic and nuclear glycoproteins. We then discuss in more detail the existence, localization, and possible functions of the new types of glycosylation that appear to be enriched in these subcellular domains. Finally, we speculate as to the significance of these findings with respect to future investigations in biochemistry and cell biology.
