Abstract

In this study, we analyzed the structures of complex type N-glycans linked to glycoproteins in mature red tomato to determine the relative ratio of high-mannose type structure and complex type structure. Structural analysis of pyridylaminated N-glycans revealed that the truncated plant complex type structure accounted for about 70% of total conjugated N-glycans, while the high-mannose type structure accounted for about 22%.
