  • Function

    Forms hydroxylysine residues in -Xaa-Lys-Gly- sequences in collagens. These hydroxylysines serve as sites of attachment for carbohydrate units and are essential for the stability of the intermolecular collagen cross-links.
  • Tissue specificity

    Highly expressed in pancreas and muscle. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are expressed in the majority of the examined cell types. Isoform 2 is specifically expressed in skin, lung, dura and aorta.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in PLOD2 are the cause of Bruck syndrome type 2 (BRKS2) [MIM:609220]. Bruck syndrome, also known as osteogenesis imperfecta with congenital joint contractures, is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by generalized osteopenia, joint contractures at birth, fragile bones and short stature. It can be distinguished from osteogenesis imperfecta by the absence of hearing loss and dentinogenesis imperfecta, and by the presence of clubfoot and congenital joint limitations. The molecular defect is an aberrant cross-linking of bone collagen, due to underhydroxylation of lysine residues within the telopeptides of type I collagen, whereas the lysine residues in the triple helix are normal.
