Heat protection. The native conformation of many proteins can be stabilised against thermal denaturation by glycosylation. Here we show that the thermal stability of the naturally nonglycosylated enzyme, dihydrofolate reductase, can be increased significantly by site-selective glycosylation (see figure). The data suggest that increases in thermal stability can be achieved even with the small carbohydrates used in this study.
