26204487 FUCA1 downregulation confers inferior survival for triple-negative breast cancer patients by modulating the glycosylation status of the tumor cell surface
25129443 Serum alpha-L-fucosidase levels were significantly elevated in hepatocellular carcinoma.
24569461 Preoperative serum AFU is a prognostic predictor of hepatocellular carcinoma.
24469468 IL-13, IL-4 and IL-5 have no effect on the expression of FUCA1 and FUCA2, but its expression is upregulated by IFN-gamma, a Th1 cytokine.
23965968 Diminished FUCA1 mRNA levels in tumors, indicate that expression of tissue alpha-L-fucosidase could be regulated at transcriptional level in colorectal cancer.
23911047 We observed significant lower values of GAL, alpha-fucosidase and tendency to decrease of MAN and GLU concentration in nasal polyps
23898208 A synthetic peptide corresponding to the immunosuppressive domain (amino acids 574-592) of HIV-1 gp41 downregulates the expression of fucosidase, alpha-L-1 (FUCA1) in peptide-treated PBMCs
23383108 A synthetic peptide corresponding to the immunosuppressive domain (amino acids 574-592) of HIV-1 gp41 downregulates the expression of fucosidase, alpha-L-1 (FUCA1) in peptide-treated PBMCs
22763966 In the serum of patients with Lyme disease, GAL activity significantly increased (p = 0.029), and the activity of FUC had a tendency to increase (p = 0.153), compared to the control group.
20800603 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19782187 Data show that the correlation between the fluorescence activity of the enzyme AFU by the developed procedures and the standard method was positive and highly significant in patients and controls.
19064572 Observational study and meta-analysis of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18217416 following HIV infection, there is an increased rate of catabolism of glycoconjugates in saliva resulting from changes in the proportions of the activity of isoenzymes A and B of N-acetyl-beta-hexosaminidase, beta-galactosidase and alpha-fucosidase
17133604 The fucosidase has a role in the intimate species signature interactions between sperm and oocyte.
16773698 The purified alpha-L-fucosidase from primary hepatocarcinoma (PHC) is different in its properties from alpha-L-fucosidase in human other organs. The polyclonal antibody prepared in this experiment can be applied to the diagnosis of PHC.
