Summary: 4-alpha-L-fucosyltransferase glycosyl transferase group 56
The Pfam group coordinates the annotation of Pfam families in Wikipedia, but we have not yet assigned a Wikipedia article to this family. If you think that a particular Wikipedia article provides good annotation, please let us know.
4-alpha-L-fucosyltransferase glycosyl transferase group 56 Provide feedback
This family contains the bacterial enzyme 4-alpha-L-fucosyltransferase (Fuc4NAc transferase) (EC 2.4.1.-) (approximately 360 residues long). This catalyses the synthesis of Fuc4NAc-ManNAcA-GlcNAc-PP-Und (lipid III) as part of the biosynthetic pathway of enterobacterial common antigen (ECA), a polysaccharide comprised of the trisaccharide repeat unit Fuc4NAc-ManNAcA-GlcNAc .

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request
