Biochem/physiol Actions

L-Fucose (6-Deoxy-L-galactose) is used in studies of fucoidan polysaccharides containing glycans. It is studied as a glycan modifying carbohydrate that generates antigenic sites recognized by IgE antibodies. L-Fucose is used as a substrate to identify, differentiate, and characterize enzymes such as fucosidase(s),l-fucose isomerase(s), and L-fucose dehydrogenase(s). It may be used to study organelles, and bacterial microcompartments, involved in the degradation of plant and algal cell wall sugars. L-Fucose may also be used as a reference compound in rare sugar identification and analysis.
