This slide outlines one of our major contributions in the area of glycosylation. This is a fundamental mechanism which leads to starch, cellulose, and glycoproteins (some of which may be in the protein coat of the HIV virus). Using data initially gathered from Acetobacter sequences, we were able to detect a trend among many different organisms in glycosylation mechanisms. This work was published as follows:

Saxena, I.S., R. M. Brown, M. Fevre, R. Geremia, and B. Henrissat. 1995. Multidomain architecture of glycosyl transferases: Implications for mechanism of action. J. Bacteriology. 177: 1419-1324
