Target

  • Function
    Responsible for the post-translational oxidative deamination of peptidyl lysine residues in precursors to fibrous collagen and elastin. In addition to cross-linking of extracellular matrix proteins, may have a direct role in tumor suppression.
  • Tissue specificity
    Heart, placenta, skeletal muscle, kidney, lung and pancreas.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in LOX may be a cause of cutis laxa autosomal recessive type 1 (ARCL1) [MIM:219100].
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the lysyl oxidase family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    The lysine tyrosylquinone cross-link (LTQ) is generated by condensation of the epsilon-amino group of a lysine with a topaquinone produced by oxidation of tyrosine.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted > extracellular space.
