Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 142)


Glycosylation of viral glycoproteins as a co- and posttranslational event has been studied in a large number of viral systems (for review see Klenk and Rott, 1980). From these data a general picture can be drawn:
