Xyloglucan fucosyltransferase (IPR004938)

Short name: XG_FTase

Family relationships



Plant cell walls are crucial for development, signal transduction, and disease resistance in plants. Cell walls are made of cellulose, hemicelluloses, and pectins. Xyloglucan (XG), the principal load-bearing hemicellulose of dicotyledonous plants, has a terminal fucosyl residue. This fucosyltransferase adds this residue [PMID: 10373113].
