This is a highly glycosylated protein and can exhibit bands at ~32 kDa, ~50 kDa and ~58 kDa representing the mature (secreted) form, the pro form and the glycosylated forms, respectively.
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.
