- n. Plural form of fucosyltransferase.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
,  Conversely, we thought that O blood group, non-secretor and Lewis negative genotypes (genotypes that lack or produce nonfunctional fucosyltransferases) would have higher prevalence in patients with mild phenotypes, reflecting a reduced risk of infection.
We anticipated that the A, B or AB blood group, secretor (FUT2) and Lewis positive (FUT3) genotypes would be found in higher prevalence in patients with severe lung phenotype, because genotypes associated with functional fucosyltransferases for synthesis of pertinent glycoproteins have been shown to be associated with increased propensity towards infection with
Formation of other histo-blood group antigens is dependent on fucosyltransferases.
