Domain

L-fucokinase (IPR012887)

Short name: Fucokinase

Domain relationships

None.

Description

In the salvage pathway of GDP-L-fucose, free cytosolic fucose is phosphorylated by L-fucokinase to form L-fucose-L-phosphate, which is then further converted to GDP-L-fucose in the reaction catalysed by GDP-L-fucose pyrophosphorylase [PMID: 14686921].
