Human Gene FUT7 (uc004ckq.2) Description and Page Index
  Description: Homo sapiens fucosyltransferase 7 (alpha (1,3) fucosyltransferase) (FUT7), mRNA.
RefSeq Summary (NM_004479): The protein encoded by this gene is a Golgi stack membrane protein that is involved in the creation of sialyl-Lewis X antigens. The encoded protein can direct the synthesis of the E-selectin-binding sialyl-Lewis X moiety. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]. Sequence Note: The RefSeq transcript and protein were derived from genomic sequence to make the sequence consistent with the reference genome assembly. The genomic coordinates used for the transcript record were based on alignments. Publication Note: This RefSeq record includes a subset of the publications that are available for this gene. Please see the Gene record to access additional publications. ##Evidence-Data-START## Transcript exon combination :: BC086312.1, X78031.1 [ECO:0000332] ##Evidence-Data-END## ##RefSeq-Attributes-START## RefSeq Select criteria :: based on single protein-coding transcript ##RefSeq-Attributes-END##

CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: GDP-L-fucose + alpha-2,3-Neu-N-acetyl-1,4- beta-D-galactosyl-N-acetyl-D-glucosaminyl-R = GDP + alpha-2,3-Neu- N-acetyl-1,4-beta-D-galactosyl-(alpha-1,3-L-fucosyl)-N-acetyl-D- glucosaminyl-R.
PATHWAY: Protein modification; protein glycosylation.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Golgi apparatus, Golgi stack membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein. Note=Membrane-bound form in trans cisternae of Golgi.
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Leukocytic/myeloid lineage cells.
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 10 family.

The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
