Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have alpha-L-fucosidase activity and carbohydrate binding activity. Predicted to be involved in fucose metabolic process and glycoside catabolic process. Predicted to localize to the lysosome. Used to study fucosidosis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in fucosidosis. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; cranium; genitourinary system; and heart. Orthologous to human FUCA1 (alpha-L-fucosidase 1).
