Abstract

The human N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase I gene was introduced in the genome of Trichoderma reesei strain VTT-D-80133. Expression was studied after induction from the cellobiohydrolase I promoter. Successful in vivo transfer of GlcNAc was demonstrated by analyzing the neutral N-glycans which were synthesized on cellobiohydrolase I. Final proof of the formation of GlcNAcMan5GlcNAc2 was obtained by NMR analysis. Copyright (C) 1999 Federation of European Biochemical Societies.
