L-Fucose is a sugar present in human secretions as part of human milk oligosaccharides, mucins, and other glycoconjugates in the intestinal epithelium. The genome of the probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) carries a gene cluster encoding a putative L-fucose permease (fucP), L-fucose catabolic pathway (fucI, fucK, fucU, and fucA), and a(More)
Fucosyl-N-acetylglucosamine disaccharides are important core structures that form part of human mucosal and milk glyco-complexes. We have previously shown that AlfB and AlfC α-L-fucosidases from Lactobacillus casei are able to synthesize fucosyl-α-1,3--N-acetylglucosamine (Fuc-α1,3-GlcNAc) and fucosyl-α-1,6-N-acetylglucosamine (Fuc-α1,6-GlcNAc),(More)
