α-L-Fucosidases are carbohydrate-processing enzymes belonging to the exoglycosidase family of glycoside hydrolases. These enzymes break down glycosidic bonds of sugars at the terminal ends. Fucose–containing glycolipids and glycoproteins can accumulate in different tissues when α-L-Fucosidase is inactive.
X-α-L-fucopyranoside is used as a chromogenic substrate for α-L-Fucosidase, producing a blue precipitate.
