A novel glycosyl-amino acid linkage: rabbit-muscle glycogen is covalently linked to a protein via tyrosine.


A recent review summarizes our identification in rabbit-muscle glycogen of a protein that resists all attempts at removal by means that should displace non-covalently bound protein [Kennedy et al. (1985) In Membranes and Muscle (Berman, M.C., Gevers, W. and Opie, L.H. eds.) pp. 65-84, ICSU Press/IRL Press, Oxford]. Here we confirm that the glycogen is covalently bonded to the protein and report that the attachment is via a novel glycosidic linkage involving the hydroxyl group of tyrosine.
