You need to be a bit more specific. there is a very simple sequence that
is necessary but not sufficient for N-linked glycosylation, and there are
a variety of concensus sequeences and algorithms that predict mammalian
O-linked glycosylation. I am not familiar with bacterial sequences, i was
under the impression (perhaps mistaken) that bugs don;t glycosylate the
way that Eukaryotes do.
