2 (FUT2) non-secretor status is associated with Crohn's disease" Human Molecular Genetics, vol.
This raises the question on how this type of glycans are presented in the surface of mushrooms, as no FUT8 family member of fucosyltransferases
responsible for this linkage has been identified in yeast nor mushrooms [ 38].
Sequence and expression of a candidate for the human Secretor blood group a (1,2) fucosyltransferase
Fucosylation in cancer progression has been best studied in hepatocellular carcinoma, which results in overexpression of the enzyme fucosyltransferase

VII and newly cloned GlcNAc[beta]:6-sulfotransferase cDNA," Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, vol.
The a-1 fucosyltransferase
gene (FUT1), which was localized on SSC6q11 by the FISH method, has been recognized as the best candidate gene for ECF18R (Meijerink et al., 1997).
Activity of a( 1-2) asialo GM1 fucosyltransferase
as a sensitive marker for microbiota-induced development of the small intestine
Moreover, a non-sense mutation in the fucosyltransferase
gene 2 (FUT2), which gives rise to the nonsecretor phenotype, has been found to provide almost complete protection from experimental and natural NoV infection (2,3).
(1970) A fucosyltransferase
found in human milk: the product of the Lewis blood group gene.
Lewis enzyme (alpha1-3/4 fucosyltransferase
) polymorphisms do not explain the Lewis phenotype in the gastric mucosa of a Portuguese population.
Persons carrying [greater than or equal to] 1 functional FUT2 allele, and thus expressing [alpha]1,2 fucosyltransferase
2 (FucT-II), are termed secretor positive (secretors), and can express the A and B blood group antigens as well as H-type 1 and Lewis b ([Le.sup.b]) antigens on mucosa and in secretions.
