Novel therapeutic targets for cardiac disease and cancer...
July 27, 2018
Protein O-fucosyltransferase 1 (POFUT1) fucosylates cell-surface and secreted glycoproteins including Notch, which is critical during cellular development. Aberrations in this pathway may be linked to generalized Dowling-Degos disease. POFUT1 may also be a novel therapeutic target for cardiac disease and cancer. In this structure obtained from Mail-In data, mouse POFUT1 is in complex with mouse Notch1 EGF26 and GDP. PDB ID 5KY4.Nat. Chem. Biol. 13, 757
