|Other Names||Galactoside 2-alpha-L-fucosyltransferase 2, 188.8.131.52, Alpha(1, 2)FT 2, Fucosyltransferase 2, GDP-L-fucose:beta-D-galactoside 2-alpha-L-fucosyltransferase 2, SE2, Secretor blood group alpha-2-fucosyltransferase, Secretor factor, Se, FUT2, SEC2|
|Format||0.5 mg/ml in Tris saline, 0.02% sodium azide, pH7.3 with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||FUT2 Antibody (internal region, near N-Term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Mediates the transfer of fucose to the terminal galactose on glycan chains of cell surface glycoproteins and glycolipids (PubMed:7876235). The resulting epitope plays a role in cell-cell interaction including host-microbe interaction (PubMed:12692541, PubMed:8018146). Mediates interaction with intestinal microbiota influencing its composition (PubMed:21625510, PubMed:24733310, PubMed:22068912). Creates a soluble precursor oligosaccharide FuC-alpha ((1,2)Galbeta-) called the H antigen which is an essential substrate for the final step in the soluble ABO blood group antigen synthesis pathway (PubMed:7876235).|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus, Golgi stack membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein. Note=Membrane-bound form in trans cisternae of Golgi|
|Tissue Location||Small intestine, colon and lung.|
