(2004): Generation of Arabidopsis thaliana plants with complex N-glycans lacking beta1,2-linked xylose and core alpha1,3-linked fucose.
FEBS Lett. 2004; 561(1-3):132-136 FullText FullText_BOKU

The plant glycosyltransferases, beta1,2-xylosyltransferase (XylT) and core alpha1,3-fucosyltransferase (FucT), are responsible for the transfer of beta1,2-linked xylose and core alpha1,3-linked fucose residues to glycoprotein N-glycans. These glycan epitopes are not present in humans and thus may cause immunological responses, which represent a limitation for the therapeutic use of recombinant mammalian glycoproteins produced in transgenic plants. Here we report the genetic modification of the N-glycosylation pathway in Arabidopsis thaliana plants. Knockout plants were generated with complete deficiency of XylT and FucT. These plants lack antigenic protein-bound N-glycans and instead synthesise predominantly structures with two terminal betaN-acetylglucosamine residues (GlcNAc(2)Man(3)GlcNAc(2)).
