Identification of a missense mutation (G329A;Arg(110)--> GLN) in the human FUT7 gene.

Abstract

The human FUT7 gene codes for the alpha1,3-fucosyltransferase VII (Fuc-TVII), which is involved in the biosynthesis of the sialyl Lewis x (SLe(x)) epitope on human leukocytes. The FUT7 gene has so far been considered to be monomorphic. Neutrophils isolated from patients with ulcerative colitis were examined for apparent alterations in protein glycosylation… (More)
