    1. On the following sequence: CQLTNNSEGIDWNRT
    Mark a residue that has,
    -phosphorylation site (mark with a p)
    -can be ADP-ribosylated (mark with a)
    -methylation site (mark with m)

    2. At each PTM (posttranslational modification) give one biochemical agent that's can supply the modifying group.

    3. Indicate one site that N-linked glycosylation could occur on the sequence by circling the residue.
