Endoplasmic Reticulum

ID #1281

Regarding processing of proteins in the ER, do the GPI anchors get added to the 10-mer or are they added to the protein in a different location? and are the two processes related to each other, or do they just happen to be two proccesses occuring in the ER?


They just happen to be occurring in the same location. The carbohydrate tree that gets added in N-linked glycosylation is NOT the same thing that gets added to phosphatidyl inositol and then covalently linked to a protein.
