Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Enables alpha-(1->6)-fucosyltransferase activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including N-glycan fucosylation; N-glycan processing; and cell surface receptor signaling pathway. Predicted to be located in Golgi cisterna membrane. Predicted to be integral component of membrane. Is expressed in telencephalon. Used to study pulmonary emphysema. Orthologous to human FUT8 (fucosyltransferase 8).
