Background Information

FUCA1(a-l-Fucosidase) is a lysosomal glycosidase which is ubiquitous in eukaryotic cells. This enzyme is usually found as a soluble component of the lysosome and functions as an acid hydrolase in the degradation of numerous and diverse fucoglycoconjugates.The mammalian a-l-fucosidases are relatively large, multisubunit glycoproteins which exist in multiple molecular isoforms.This enzyme may have a role in sperm-egg interactions in the reproductive tract of the female rat. There is a precursor 54 kDa form of rat sperm fucosidase which is processed to a mature 52 kDa form of the enzyme(PMID:8836125). This protein from rat epididymis is a tetramer of 210-220 kDa, made up by two pairs of subunits of 47 and 60 kDa, and the one from human seminal plasma exists in different oligomeric forms, that is, as a dimer, as a tetramer, and as a hexamer made up of a single subunit of 56-57 kDa(PMID:16736526).
