Are you wanting an authentic standard or just a protein which 
contains Fuc-Thr? Harris et al (Biochemistry 1991, vol. 30 pp. 
2311-2314) use MS for identification of Fuc-Thr in tissue plasminogen 
activator. But perhaps you already know this reference. Maybe 
you'll have to get a friendly chemist to make Fuc-Thr for you!
