Lysyl hydroxylase (LH, EC is the enzyme catalyzing the formation of hydroxylysyl residues in collagens and other proteins with collagenous domains. Although lower species, such as Caenorhabditis elegans, have only one LH orthologue, LH activity in higher species, such as human, rat, and mouse, is present in three molecules, LH1, LH2, and LH3, encoded by three different genes. In addition, LH2 is present in two alternatively spliced forms (LH2a, LH2b). To understand the functions of… CONTINUE READING
