Abstract

In contrast to all other known forms of protein glycosylation, certain recently described protein-saccharide structures are highly localized to the nucleoplasmic and cytoplasmic compartments of the cell. The presence of these novel saccharides on proteins of the nuclear pore, chromatin and cytoskeleton poses fascinating questions concerning their possible functions, modes of biosynthesis, and potential roles in intracellular transport.
