Summaries for FUT1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FUT1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a Golgi stack membrane protein that is involved in the creation of a precursor of the H antigen, which is required for the final step in the soluble A and B antigen synthesis pathway. This gene is one of two encoding the galactoside 2-L-fucosyltransferase enzyme. Mutations in this gene are a cause of the H-Bombay blood group. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for FUT1 Gene

FUT1 (Fucosyltransferase 1 (Galactoside 2-Alpha-L-Fucosyltransferase, H Blood Group)) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Glycosphingolipid biosynthesis - ganglio series. GO annotations related to this gene include fucosyltransferase activity and galactoside 2-alpha-L-fucosyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is FUT2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FUT1 Gene

  • Creates a soluble precursor oligosaccharide FuC-alpha ((1,2)Galbeta-) called the H antigen which is an essential substrate for the final step in the soluble A and B antigen synthesis pathway. H and Se enzymes fucosylate the same acceptor substrates but exhibit different Km values
