N-airtit protein glycosylation (N-glycosylation o N-glycans) at Asn residues (Asn-x-Ser/Thr motifs) in glycoproteins.[1]

Glycoproteins are proteins that conteen oligosaccharide cheens (glycans) covalently attached tae polypeptide side-cheens. The carbohydrate is attached tae the protein in a cotranslational or posttranslational modification. This process is kent as glycosylation. Secreted extracellular proteins are eften glycosylatit.
