Reaction: transfers a β-D-GlcNAc residue from UDP-D-GlcNAc to the fucose residue of a fucosylated protein acceptor
Other name(s): O-fucosylpeptide β-1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase; fringe
Systematic name: UDP-D-GlcNAc:O-L-fucosylpeptide 3-β-N-acetyl-D-glucosaminyltransferase
Comments: O-Fucosylpeptide 3-β-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferases are the products of fringe genes. O-linked fucose is an unusual form of glycosylation where the fucose is attached directly to proteins through the hydroxy groups of Ser or Thr residues.
