[1] Role of n-linked glycans of hcv glycoprotein e1 in folding of structural proteins and formation of viral particles / O. V. Orlova, V. L. Drutsa, P. V. Spirin et al. // Molecular Biology. — 2013. — Vol. 47, no. 1. — P. 131–139. Envelope proteins E1 and E2 of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) play a major role in the life cycle of a virus. These proteins are the main components of the virion and are involved in virus assembly. Envelope proteins are modified by N-linked glycosylation, which is supposed to play a role in their stability, in the assembly of the functional glycoprotein heterodimer, in protein folding, and in viral entry. The effects of N-linked glycosylation of HCV protein E1 on the assembly of structural proteins were studied using site-directed mutagenesis in a model system of Sf9 insect cells producing three viral structural proteins with the formation of virus-like particles due to the baculovirus expression system. The removal of individual N-glycosylation sites in HCV protein E1 did not affect the efficiency of its expression in insect Sf9 cells. The electrophoretic mobility of E1 increased with a decreasing number of N-glycosylation sites. The destruction of E1 glycosylation sites N1 or N5 influenced the assembly of the noncovalent E1E2 glycoprotein heterodimer, which is the prototype of the natural complex within the HCV virion. It was also shown that the lack of glycans at E1 sites N1 and N5 significantly reduced the efficiency of E1 expression in mammalian HEK293 T cells. [ DOI ]
