o Abstract
O-Fucose modifications have been described in several different protein contexts including epidermal growth factor-like repeats (important players in several signal transduction systems) and thrombospondin type 1 repeats (in a region involved in cell adhesion). In Notch, a cell-surface signaling receptor required for many developmental events, the O-fucose moieties serve as a substrate for the activity of Fringe, a known modifier of Notch function.
