EC 2.4.1.37     
Accepted name: fucosylgalactoside 3-α-galactosyltransferase
Reaction: UDP-α-D-galactose + α-L-fucosyl-(1→2)-D-galactosyl-R = UDP + α-D-galactosyl-(1→3)-[α-L-fucosyl(1→2)]-D-galactosyl-R (where R can be OH, an oligosaccharide or a glycoconjugate)
Other name(s): UDP-galactose:O-α-L-fucosyl(1→2)D-galactose α-D-galactosyltransferase; UDPgalactose:glycoprotein-α-L-fucosyl-(1,2)-D-galactose 3-α-D-galactosyltransferase; [blood group substance] α-galactosyltransferase; blood-group substance B-dependent galactosyltransferase; glycoprotein-fucosylgalactoside α-galactosyltransferase; histo-blood group B transferase; histo-blood substance B-dependent galactosyltransferase; UDP-galactose:α-L-fucosyl-1,2-D-galactoside 3-α-D-galactosyltransferase; UDP-galactose:α-L-fucosyl-(1→2)-D-galactoside 3-α-D-galactosyltransferase
Systematic name: UDP-α-D-galactose:α-L-fucosyl-(1→2)-D-galactoside 3-α-D-galactosyltransferase
Comments: Acts on blood group substance, and can use a number of 2-fucosyl-galactosides as acceptors.
