The gene α-L-fucosidase is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Fuca (CG6128, FBgn0036169). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: fucose binding. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: defense response to bacterium. 3 alleles are reported. No phenotypic data is available. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: Glycoside hydrolase, catalytic domain; Glycoside hydrolase, family 29; Glycoside hydrolase, family 29, bacteria/metazoa/fungi; Glycoside hydrolase, superfamily. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of extremely low expression. Peak expression observed in adult male stages. This gene is annotated by FlyBase as a dicistronic gene, meaning that some or all of its transcripts encode two or more polypeptide-coding open reading frames (ORFs) , with each ORF assigned to a different gene. The distribution of RNA-Seq coverage data amongst the different encoded genes cannot be determined. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult heart. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: larval central nervous system, larval fat body, larval trachea, adult carcass. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1635028_s_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Fuca. Gene sequence location is 3L:11511898..11513924.
