  • FunctionCatalyzes the addition of fucose in alpha 1-6 linkage to the first GlcNAc residue, next to the peptide chains in N-glycans.
  • PathwayProtein modification; protein glycosylation.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glycosyltransferase 23 family.
    Contains 1 SH3 domain.
  • Cellular localizationGolgi apparatus > Golgi stack membrane. Membrane-bound form in trans cisternae of Golgi.
  • Information by UniProt
  • Database links
  • FormThe expression of this gene may contribute to the malignancy of cancer cells and to their invasive and metastatic capabilities. There are 2 isoforms produced by alternative splicing. Immunogen is not present in isoform 2 (also known as Retinal).

  • ICC/IF image of ab76791 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab76791, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
