Endoplasmic Reticulum

ID #1279

I was studying N-Linked Glycosylation and the lecture notes suggest that the 14-mer is attached to an asparagine amino acid. Does this mean that the 14-mer is always attached to the asparagine? Does the 14-mer need to be attached to the asparagine? I'm not exactly sure what this means.

Yes, this carbohydrate "tree" is always going to be attached to a nitrogen atom in the side chain of an asparagine amino acid.
