Official Full Name
protein O-fucosyltransferase 2
Fucose is typically found as a terminal modification of branched chain glycoconjugates, but it also exists in direct O-linkage to serine or threonine residues within cystine knot motifs in epidermal growth factor (EGF; MIM 131530)-like repeats or thrombospondin (THBS; see MIM 188060) type-1 repeats. POFUT2 is an O-fucosyltransferase that use THBS type-1 repeats as substrates (Luo et al., 2006 (PubMed 16464857)).
