Conservative changes - glycosylated N

I want to mutate away potential glycosylation sites while doing as little 
as possible to the protein in general.  I've seen lists of conservative 
amino acid changes, but they don't differentiate between glycosylated 
and non-glycosylated Ns.  It seems to me that the most conservative 
change may not be the same for the glycosylated and non-glycosylated Ns.  
Can anyone point me to a reference that explains my options?
