LFNG O-fucosylpeptide 3-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase

This gene is a member of the fringe gene family which also includes radical and manic fringe genes. They all encode evolutionarily conserved glycosyltransferases that act in the Notch signaling pathway to define boundaries during embryonic development. While their genomic structure is distinct from other glycosyltransferases, fringe proteins have a fucose-specific beta-1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity that leads to elongation of O-linked fucose residues on Notch, which alters Notch signaling. This gene product is predicted to be a single-pass type II Golgi membrane protein but it may also be secreted and proteolytically processed like the related proteins in mouse and Drosophila (PMID: 9187150). Mutations in this gene have been associated with autosomal recessive spondylocostal dysostosis 3. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

Lunatic, Manic, and Radical Fringe Each Promote T and B Cell Development.
Stanley et al., New York City, United States. In J Immunol, Feb 2016
Lunatic, Manic, and Radical Fringe (LFNG, MFNG, and RFNG) are N-acetylglucosaminyltransferases that modify Notch receptors and regulate Notch signaling.
Hoxb6 can interfere with somitogenesis in the posterior embryo through a mechanism independent of its rib-promoting activity.
Mallo et al., Portugal. In Development, Jan 2016
In particular, Hoxb6 can disturb somitogenesis and anterior-posterior somite patterning by deregulating Lfng expression.
Lunatic Fringe is a potent tumor suppressor in Kras-initiated pancreatic cancer.
Xu et al., Jackson, United States. In Oncogene, Sep 2015
Here we report differential regulation of Notch receptors by Lunatic Fringe (Lfng), which encodes an O-fucosylpeptide 3-β-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase known to modify epidermal growth factor repeats in the Notch extracellular domain, during pathogenesis of Kras-induced pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC).
O-fucosylation of DLL3 is required for its function during somitogenesis.
Gossler et al., Hannover, Germany. In Plos One, 2014
Loss of the DSL protein DLL3 in the mouse results in severe somite patterning defects, which are virtually indistinguishable from the defects in mice that lack lunatic fringe (LFNG), a glycosyltransferase involved in modifying Notch signaling.

Kuratani et al., Kōbe, Japan. In Zoological Lett, 2014
In vertebrates, the somite segmental boundary is determined by Notch signalling and the antagonistic relationship of the downstream targets of Notch, Lfng, and Delta1 in the anterior PSM.
Lunatic fringe deficiency cooperates with the Met/Caveolin gene amplicon to induce basal-like breast cancer.

Reduced LFNG expression facilitates JAG/NOTCH luminal progenitor signaling and cooperates with MET/CAVEOLIN basal-type signaling to promote basal-like breast cancer.

For reasonable initial conditions, 2D simulations of our model robustly generate spatially and temporally regular somites, realistic dynamic morphologies and spontaneous emergence of anterior-traveling stripes of Lfng.
Lunatic Fringe prolongs Delta/Notch-induced self-renewal of committed αβ T-cell progenitors.

Here, mutation in Notch pathway genes demonstrates that Notch signaling is also required for normal somite formation and vertebral column development in humans; of particular interest here is mutation of the LUNATIC FRINGE (LFNG) gene, which causes SCD type 3.
