Lysyl oxidase (LOX) is an extracellular enzyme that is critical for the normal biosynthesis of collagens and elastin. LOX is synthesized as a 50 kDa precursor, secreted into the extracellular matrix and subsequently proteolytically processed to a 30 kDa active enzyme and an 18 kDa propeptide. LOX also reverts ras-mediated transformation and its expression is down-regulated in human cancers. Most recently, the lysyl oxidase pro-peptide (LOPP) has been associated with tumor suppression, as it inhibits ras-dependent cellular transformation.
