Amino acid editing of NFE2L1 by PNGase causes abnormal mobility on SDS-PAGE

NFE2L1 (also known as NRF1) is a member of the nuclear erythroid 2-like family of transcription factors and is critical for counteracting various types of cellular stress such as oxidative, proteotoxic or metabolic stress. This unique transcription factor is also known to undergo changes, including post-translational modifications, limited proteolysis or translocation into the nucleus, before it exerts full transcriptional activity. As a result, there are various molecular forms with distinct sizes for this protein, while the precise nature of each form remains elusive. In this study, the N-glycosylated status of NFE2L1 in cells was examined.
