Lysyl Oxidase (LO) is an extracellular, copper-dependent enzyme that initiates the cross-linking of collagens and elastin by catalyzing the oxidative deamination of peptidyl lysine to alpha-aminoadipic-delta-semialdehyde. Members of LO family have diverse functions which include tumor suppression and cell adhesion and senescence. LOXL2, a 87KDa protein, is a novel member of this family. It contains 3 potential N-linked glycosylation sites, 4 scavenger receptor cysteine-rich (SRCR) domains and highly conserved copper-binding and Lysyl-tyrosylquinone cofactor sites. It is a component of extracellular matrix that might be involved in cell adhesion and senescence. Role of LOXL2 has been implicated in malignant transformation.
