In enzymology, a fucokinase (EC 220.127.116.11) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction: ATP + L-fucose → ADP + beta-L-fucose 1-phosphate. Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are ATP and L-fucose, whereas its two products are ADP and beta-L-fucose 1-phosphate. In enzymology, a fucose-1-phosphate guanylyltransferase (EC 18.104.22.168) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction: GTP + beta-L-fucose 1-phosphate → diphosphate + GDP-L-fucose. Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are GTP and beta-L-fucose 1-phosphate, whereas its two products are diphosphate and GDP-L-fucose.
