Annotation score:2 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the 'correct annotation' for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>

Lectin that specifically binds to L-fucose and weakly reacts with mannose and N-acetyl-neuraminic acid (PubMed:12092808). Has strongest preference for the alpha-1,6-fucosylated chain (core fucose) on glycoproteins among alpha-1,2-, alpha-1,3-, alpha-1,4-, and alpha-1,6-fucosylated chains (By similarity). Binds to fucose residues of IgE in mice and human, causing antigen-independent IgE-mediated mast cell activation and anaphylactoid reactions in mice and is possibly implicated in allergic response to Aspergillus oryzae in humans (By similarity). Induces secretion of proinflammatory cytokines IL6 and IL8 implicated in ocular diseases such as mycotic keratitis, probably through its interaction with host toll-like receptors TLR2 and TLR4, followed by up-regulation of proinflammatory cytokines (By similarity).By similarity1 Publication

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1. The algorithm is described in the ISO 3309 standard. </p> <p class="publication">Press W.H., Flannery B.P., Teukolsky S.A. and Vetterling W.T.<br /> <strong>Cyclic redundancy and other checksums</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.nrbook.com/b/bookcpdf.php">Numerical recipes in C 2nd ed., pp896-902, Cambridge University Press (1993)</a>)</p> Checksum:iDA431C8DF83A3692
