The human lysyl oxidase-like 2 protein functions as an amine oxidase toward collagen and elastin


The lysyl oxidase-like 2 (LOXL2) protein is a human paralogue of lysyl oxidase (LOX) that functions as an amine oxidase for formation of lysine-derived cross-links found in collagen and elastin. In addition to the C-terminal domains characteristic to the LOX family members, LOXL2 contains four scavenger receptor cysteine-rich (SRCR) domains in the N… (More)
