FPGT Catalyzes the formation of GDP-L-fucose from GTP and L-fucose-1-phosphate. Functions as a salvage pathway to reutilize L-fucose arising from the turnover of glycoproteins and glycolipids. Expressed in many tissues. 6 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
