Endoplasmic Reticulum

ID #2450

I am just curious what exactly is the purpose of trimming off the glucose molecules on the 14-mer after glycosylation? Is it just in order to be able to transport the protein to the Golgi?

Trimming off glucose from a 14-mer to 11-mer is the signal that the protein is ready to be transported from the ER to the Golgi.
