L-Fucose is a 6-carbon deoxyhexose and exists in nature in various biological niches. A major natural source of L-fucose is the brown algal polysaccharide fucoidan. L-Fucose is a minor component in plant cell wall polysaccharides, specifically, rhamnogalacturonan, xyloglucan and also arabinogalactan proteins that are involved in plant cell elongation. L-fucose is a common component of human milk oligosaccharides (HMO) such as 2’-fucosyl-lactose.
