Missing density: extended glycosylations. The specific conformation of the last three [alpha]-D-mannose moieties (A5-A7) of the extended branched glycosylation in PDB entry 3ib0 (Mir et al., 2009BB39) is unsupported by electron density in the structure of bovine lactotransferrin, while the first two sugar moieties (A3-A4) are clearly present. The 1.4 Å resolution mFo - DFc map contoured at +3[sigma] (green) was calculated after refining a model omitting the sugar moieties of the glycosylation site.  [article HTML]
