Descriptor in Spanish: Fucosiltransferasas
Descriptor in Portuguese: Fucosiltransferases
Descriptor in French: Fucosyltransferases
Tree number(s): D08.811.913.400.450.300
Scope note: Enzymes catalyzing the transfer of fucose from a nucleoside diphosphate fucose to an acceptor molecule which is frequently another carbohydrate, a glycoprotein, or a glycolipid molecule. Elevated activity of some fucosyltransferases in human serum may serve as an indicator of malignancy. The class includes EC 2.4.1.65; EC 2.4.1.68; EC 2.4.1.69; EC 2.4.1.89.
