Identification and molecular cloning of a functional GDP-fucose transporter in Drosophila melanogaster.

Abstract:

Nucleotide sugar transporters play a central role in the process of glycosylation. They are responsible for the translocation of nucleotide sugars from the cytosol, their site of synthesis, into the Golgi apparatus where the activated sugars serve as substrates for a variety of glycosyltransferases. We and others have recently identified and cloned the first GDP-fucose transporters of H. sapiens and C. elegans. Based on sequence similarity, we could identify a putative homolog in Drosophila m...
