High impact information on FucTB

  • Furthermore, expression of fut-1 cDNA in Pichia and insect cells in conjunction with antibody staining, high pressure liquid chromatography, and matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry analyses showed that FUT-1 is a core alpha1,3-fucosyltransferase with an unusual substrate specificity [1].
