  • Ligand
  • The fucose-mannose ligand-ELISA in the diagnosis and prognosis of canine visceral leishmaniasis in Brazil. (ajtmh.org)
  • The fucose-mannose ligand (FML)-ELISA assay showed a sensitivity of 100% and a specificity of 100% in diagnosis of canine visceral leishmaniasis (CVL) (kala-azar) in sera from naturally infected dogs from São Gonçalo do Amaranto, Rio Grande de Norte, Brazil. (ajtmh.org)
  • polysaccharides
  • To this effect, designed optimized extraction of fucose-containing sulfated polysaccharides (FCSPs) and/or crude fucoidan from brown seaweed were performed, and the bioactivity of the isolated FCSPs was investigated. (dtu.dk)
  • antibody
  • The monoclonal antibody, CCRC-M1, which recognizes a fucose (Fuc)-containing epitope found principally in the cell wall polysaccharide xyloglucan, was used to determine the distribution of this epitope throughout the mur1 mutant of Arabidopsis. (plantphysiol.org)
  • donor
  • All fucosyltransferases utilize a nucleotide-activated form of fucose, GDP-fucose, as a fucose donor in the construction of fucosylated oligosaccharides. (hmdb.ca)
  • in the endoplasmic reticulum POFUT-1 utilizes its sub-strait GDP-β-L-fucose as a donor for the five carbon sugar Fucose. (wikipedia.org)
  • recognition
  • Members of the FTL family are characterized by a fucose recognition domain [F-type lectin domain (FTLD)] that displays a novel jellyroll fold ("F-type" fold) and unique carbohydrate- and calcium-binding sequence motifs. (frontiersin.org)
  • pathway
  • Functions as a salvage pathway to reutilize L- fucose arising from the turnover of glycoproteins and glycolipids. (mybiosource.com)
  • L-Lactaldehyde is a branching point in the metabolic pathway of L-fucose and L-rhamnose utilization. (asm.org)
  • liver
  • Fucose is secreted in urine when the liver is damaged. (hmdb.ca)
  • 8488966 ). Elevated levels of serum fucose have been reported in breast cancer, ovarian cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. (hmdb.ca)
  • catalyzes
  • Catalyzes the two-step NADP-dependent conversion of GDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-mannose to GDP-fucose, involving an epimerase and a reductase reaction. (uniprot.org)
  • Properties
  • Although differently extracted, purified, fucose-rich, modified fucoidans have been reported to exert bioactive properties such as anti-coagulant and enhance immune response activity, few studies have investigated the bioactivity of unfractionated FCSPs, notably FCSPs extracted using milder and fewer processing steps.
