  1. a.      Glycosylation in the RER
                                                                  i.      nearly all proteins produced on membrane-bound ribosomes—whether integral components of a membrane, soluble lysosomal or vacuolar enzymes, or parts of the ECM—become __

    • carbohydrate groups
    • glycoproteins
    • macromolecules
  2.                                                               i.      they also aid in the __ and __of the protein to which they are attached

    • oligosaccharides
  3.                                                               i.      the addition of sugars to an __chain is catalyzed by enzymes called __, each of which transfers a specific monosaccharide from a __sugar to the growing end of the carb chain

    • enzymes 
    • assembly line

  7. 1.      this part of __ process is invariant; in mammals, it begins with the transfer of __, then __ and three __units in the precise pattern, which is then transferred by the ER enzyme __from __ to certain __ in the nascent polypeptide as the polypeptide is being translocated into the eR lumen

    1.      this modification begins int eh ER with the enzymatic removal of two of the three __

    • tagged
    • ER chaperones

  13.                                                                                                                                                                                                               i.      if it is still partially unfolded or misfolded, another __ is added and the process is repeated until, eventually, the __has either folded correctly and continues on its way, or remains misfolded and is destroyed
                                                                                                                                                                                                                ii.      studies say the decision to destroy the defective protein begins with the __ that trims a __ from an exposed end of the __of a protein that has been in the ER for an extended period
                                                                                                                                                                                                              iii.      once one or more of these __ have been remove, the protein can no longer be recycled and, instead, is sentenced to degradation
