Dear All,

    Anybody has an idea what the chemistry of following reaction would be?:

The glycosylation of an Arginine amino acid with the glucose from
UDP-glucose. 

    I have a protein that can bind UDP-glucose and glycosylate itself at an
Arginine and I am trying to figure out how this can take place.
    
    Any ideas or a source of information regarding this question is
appreciated.

    Sincerely,
    Ivan

Francis Crick goes to heaven: "'God,' said the angel, 'This is Dr. Crick;
Dr. Crick, this is God.' 'I am so pleased to meet you,' says Francis. 'I
must ask you this question. How do imaginal disks work?'. "'Well,' comes the
reply, 'We took a little bit of this stuff and we added some things to it
and... actually, we don't know, but I can tell you that we've been building
flies up here for 200 million years and we have had no complaints.'"
