From NCBI Gene:
The protein encoded by this gene is a Golgi stack membrane protein that is involved in the creation of sialyl-Lewis X, an E-selectin ligand. Mutations in this gene are a cause of fucosyltransferase-6 deficiency. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of the E-Selectin ligand, sialyl-Lewis X. Catalyzes the transfer of fucose from GDP-beta-fucose to alpha-2,3 sialylated substrates.
