Protein N-glycosylation is regulated by the availability of nucleotide sugar substrates. Pels Rijcken et al.[3] have proposed that elevated cytosolic levels of UDP-N-acetylhexosamine impaired the transport of CMPNeuAc into the Golgi, which lead to decreased sialylation. Addition of glucosamine to cell culture medium has resulted in an increase in antennarity of N-glycans [4] . By manipulating the levels of nucleotide sugar precursors available to NS0 cells (by additions to the cell culture medium) a strategy for controlling product glycosylation could be devised.
