Summaries for FUT3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FUT3 Gene

  • The Lewis histo-blood group system comprises a set of fucosylated glycosphingolipids that are synthesized by exocrine epithelial cells and circulate in body fluids. The glycosphingolipids function in embryogenesis, tissue differentiation, tumor metastasis, inflammation, and bacterial adhesion. They are secondarily absorbed to red blood cells giving rise to their Lewis phenotype. This gene is a member of the fucosyltransferase family, which catalyzes the addition of fucose to precursor polysaccharides in the last step of Lewis antigen biosynthesis. It encodes an enzyme with alpha(1,3)-fucosyltransferase and alpha(1,4)-fucosyltransferase activities. Mutations in this gene are responsible for the majority of Lewis antigen-negative phenotypes. Multiple alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for FUT3 Gene

FUT3 (Fucosyltransferase 3 (Lewis Blood Group)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FUT3 include Hypertropia and Inflammatory Breast Carcinoma. Among its related pathways are N-glycan antennae elongation in the medial/trans-Golgi and Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification. GO annotations related to this gene include fucosyltransferase activity and 3-galactosyl-N-acetylglucosaminide 4-alpha-L-fucosyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is FUT5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FUT3 Gene

  • May catalyze alpha-1,3 and alpha-1,4 glycosidic linkages involved in the expression of Vim-2, Lewis A, Lewis B, sialyl Lewis X and Lewis X/SSEA-1 antigens. May be involved in blood group Lewis determination; Lewis-positive (Le(+)) individuals have an active enzyme while Lewis-negative (Le(-)) individuals have an inactive enzyme. Also acts on the corresponding 1,4-galactosyl derivative, forming 1,3-L-fucosyl links.
