Summary
This gene encodes an enzyme belonging to the family of fucosyltransferases. The product of this gene catalyzes the transfer of fucose from GDP-fucose to N-linked type complex glycopeptides. This enzyme is distinct from other fucosyltransferases which catalyze alpha1-2, alpha1-3, and alpha1-4 fucose addition. The expression of this gene may contribute to the malignancy of cancer cells and to their invasive and metastatic capabilities. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

    Status: REVIEWED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (5) lacks two consecutive exons in the 3' region, compared to variant 1. This variant is represented as non-coding because the use of the 5'-most supported translational start codon, as used in variant 1, renders the transcript a candidate for nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD).

The following Reference Sequences have been suppressed. Explain

  1. NM_178154.1: Suppressed sequence

    Description
    NM_178154.1: This RefSeq was permanently suppressed because the transcript is a nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD) candidate.
  2. NM_178157.1: Suppressed sequence

    Description
    NM_178157.1: This RefSeq was permanently suppressed because currently there is insufficient support for the transcript and the protein.
