ABSTRACTGPI-anchored proteins (GPI-APs) play an important role in a variety of plant biological processes including growth, stress response, morphogenesis, signalling and cell wall biosynthesis. The GPI-anchor contains a lipid-linked glycan backbone that is synthesized in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) where it is subsequently transferred to the C-terminus of proteins containing a GPI signal peptide by a GPI transamidase. Once the GPI anchor is attached to the protein, the glycan and lipid moieties are remodelled. In mammals and yeast, this remodelling is required for GPI-APs to be included in Coat Protein II (COPII) coated vesicles for their ER export and subsequent transport to the cell su..
