glycoprotein
Proteins with covalently attached sugar units, either bonded via the OH group of serine or threonine (O-glycosylated) or through the amide NH2 of asparagine (N-glycosylated). Includes most secreted proteins (serum albumin is the major exception) and proteins exposed at the outer surface of the plasma membrane. Sugar residues found include: mannose, N-acetyl glucosamine, N-acetyl galactosamine, galactose, fucose and sialic acid.
