Exhibits alpha-(1->6)-fucosyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including N-glycan fucosylation; N-glycan processing; and cell surface receptor signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to Golgi cisterna membrane and integral component of membrane. Is expressed in telencephalon. Used to study pulmonary emphysema. Orthologous to human FUT8 (fucosyltransferase 8).
