A protein with covalently bound carbohydrates.
a protein, such as mucin, containing a carbohydrate radical and a simple protein; glucoprotein.Carbohydrate is present in the blood in the form of glucose. (C6H12O6)
A protein that has sugar molecules attached to it.
a protein which has carbohydrate molecules attached to it.
A specific type of protein that has one end sticking out from the outer wall of a cell.
a protein to which various types of sugar molecule have been attached that form an important component of the cell surface.
Any protein with one or more covalently linked oligosaccharide chains. Includes most secreted proteins and most proteins exposed on the outer surface of the plasma membrane.
A class of molecules in which one or more oligosaccharide chains are covalently linked to a protein; frequently found in the plasma membrane or secreted from the cell.
a conjugate molecule made up of both protein and carbohydrate components.
A protein containing a linked sugar or polysaccharide. Glycoproteins are most commonly the receptor molecules on the outer surfaces of cells and the proteins secreted from eukaryotic cells.
A compound containing a relatively small carbohydrate group attached to a large protein.
a conjugated protein having a carbohydrate component
a compound containing carbohydrate (or glycan) covalently linked to protein
a macromolecule A macromolecule is a molecule composed of a very large number of atoms
A protein covalently linked to a sugar.
A protein with a oligosaccharide (sugar) attached to it
A molecule that is composed of a protein molecule linked to a carbohydrate molecule
Structure composed of protein and sugar subunits that spans the cell membrane
A protein that has glycans (a type of sugar) attached.
A conjugated protein found in blood.
A conjugated (joined together) protein in which the nonprotein group is a carbohydrate (such as sugar, starch, or cellulose).
A protein that carries attached to it a number of glycans. The PrP protein has two such chains attached, and it is thought it is the difference in the glycan's make-up that separates the different strains of TSEs.
a small unit made up of a sugar and a protein molecule, often part of a cell's membrane. Glycoproteins make up the envelope of HIV (e.g., gp120, gp160 [numbers denote molecular weight]).
Any of a group of conjugated proteins that contain a carbohydrate as the nonprotein component.
A molecule that consists of a carbohydrate plus a protein.
A category of macromolecules in which a single polysaccharide or group of polysaccharides are combined with a protein.
Glycoprotein is a protein with attached branching carbohydrates. Many membrane proteins are glycoproteins. These may function in cell-to-cell recognition, such as in human blood groups and immune system responses, as well as in resisting the compression of cells. Examples include cell-bound fibronectin.
A protein compound that also contains carbohydrate
A form of macromolecule that is made of protein and carbohydrate through chemical bonding
A conjugated protein in which the nonprotein group is a carbohydrate (i.e., a sugar molecule); also called glucoprotein.
A protein that carries attatched to it some chains of sugars (glycans). PrP carries two of these chains and it has been suggested that it is different chains that actually separate the strains of TSEs.
a membrane-bound protein which has attached branching carbohydrates. These may function in cell-cell recognition, such as in human blood groups and immune system response, as well as in resisting compression of cells.
Proteins with covalently attached sugar units, either bonded via the OH group of serine or threonine (O-glycosylated) or through the amide NH2 of asparagine (N-glycosylated). Includes most secreted proteins (serum albumin is the major exception) and proteins exposed at the outer surface of the plasma membrane. Sugar residues found include:- mannose, N-acetyl glucosamine, N-acetyl galactosamine, galactose, fucose and sialic acid.
A protein molecule coated with sugars.
A glycoprotein is a biomolecule composed of a protein and a carbohydrate (an oligosaccharide). The carbohydrate is attached to the protein in a cotranslational or posttranslational modification. The addition of sugar chains can happen either at asparagine, and is termed N-glycosylation, or at hydroxylysine, hydroxyproline, serine, or threonine, and is termed O-glycosylation.
