    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Consider the following events:

    1) The protein has sugar added to become a glycoprotein.

    2) The protein is in the plasma membrane with the sugar modification facing outside the cell.

    3) A membrane protein is synthesized in the rough endoplasmic reticulum.

    4) The glycoprotein is present in the membrane of a vesicle.

    5) The sugars on the glycoprotein are modified.

    6) The unmodified protein is present in the membrane of a vesicle.

    What is the correct order of the events?



    2. Relevant equations

    none

    3. The attempt at a solution

    3) A membrane protein is synthesized in the rough endoplasmic reticulum.
    6) The unmodified protein is present in the membrane of a vesicle.
    1) The protein has sugar added to become a glycoprotein.
    4) The glycoprotein is present in the membrane of a vesicle.
    5) The sugars on the glycoprotein are modified.
    2) The protein is in the plasma membrane with the sugar modification facing outside the cell.
