Gene RIF (6)

22619806 FUT5 was expressed on spermatid membranes and in serum, but not in seminal plasma, vaginal fluid and saliva. Expression was localized on head of spermatids.
21978830 down-regulation of FUT3 and FUT5 reduces the expression of sialyl-Lewis antigens and the adhesion capacities of gastric cancer cells and allows to identify the specific alpha1-3,4 fucosyltransferases implicated in the Lewis antigens synthesis
20677162 Observational study of genotype prevalence. (HuGE Navigator)
19349624 results suggested that PKR is the primary target for HSV-1 early RNA during induction of FUT3, FUT5, and FUT6
17148576 FUT5 is a receptor of glycodelin-A and zona pellucida proteins, and glycodelin-A inhibits spermatozoa-zona binding by blocking the binding of sperm FUT5 to the zona pellucida
14601054 Prostatic cancer cell transfected with this enzyme adhered to prostatic stromal cells in vitro with higher affinity than mock-transfected cancer cells.
