Predicted to have peptide-O-fucosyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including Notch signaling pathway; circulatory system development; and somitogenesis. Predicted to localize to endoplasmic reticulum and membrane. Is expressed in brain and embryo. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Dowling-Degos disease. Orthologous to human POFUT1 (protein O-fucosyltransferase 1).
