N-linked oligosaccharides attached to proteins act as tags for glycoprotein quality control, ensuring their appropriate folding and trafficking in cells. Interactions with a variety of intracellular lectins determine glycoprotein fates. Monoglucosylated glycoforms are the hallmarks of incompletely folded glycoproteins in the protein quality-control system, in which glucosidase II and UDP-glucose/glycoprotein glucosyltransferase are, respectively, responsible for glucose trimming and attachment. In this review, we summarize a recently emerging view of the structural basis of the functional mechanisms of these key enzymes as well as substrate N-linked oligosaccharides exhibiting flexible structures, as revealed by applying a series of biophysical techniques including small-angle X-ray scattering, X-ray crystallography, high-speed atomic force microscopy, electron microscopy, and computational simulation in conjunction with NMR spectroscopy.
