The secretor phenotype is defined by the FUT2 gene, a fucosyltransferasethat catalyzes the addition of terminalfucose residues to produce the H antigen, an acceptor to which the ABO transferase adds its glycosyl.
Expression of the HBGAs (A, B, H, and Lewis antigens) in saliva and on the surface of intestinal cells is driven by the FUT2 (A, B, and H antigens [secretor]) and FUT3 (Lewis antigens) genes, which express type 2 and type 3 fucosyltransferases, respectively.
2011) Colonic mucosa-associated microbiota is influenced by an interaction of Crohn disease and FUT2 (Secretor) genotype.
In future articles, we will explore in more detail, the FUT2 gene that impacts B12 Assimilation and the friendly bacteria, and the HLA gene that may predispose you to gluten intolerance.
The FUT2 gene encodes for enzyme glycosyletransferase (a-2-L- Fucosyl transferase) which become active in goblet cells and mucus glands of gastrointestinal tract (saliva bile gastric juice mucus) urogenital tract (seminal fluid vaginal secretions and urine) and respiratory tract as well as in the sweat tears milk and amniotic fluid.
Bombay phenotypes are homozygous (hh) for T725G mutation (Leucine is changed to Arginine) in the FUT I coding region with gene deletion of FUT2.
For example, the secretor FUT2 [fucosyltransferase 2 (secretor status included) (alias, galactoside 2-[alpha]-L-fucosyltransferase 2)] [6] and Le FUT3 [fucosyltransferase 3 (galactoside 3(4)-L-fucosyltransferase, Lewis blood group)] genes control the expression of enzymes in the synthetic pathway that governs expression of critical antigenic saccharide residues and, thus, an individual's presentation of Le blood group structures (28).
People like Richman, who inherited the A SNP from both of her parents, do not have a working copy of the FUT2 gene, so their intestinal cells lack the molecule that noroviruses need to cause an infection.
