The lysyl hydroxylase isoforms are widely expressed during mouse embryogenesis, but obtain tissue- and cell-specific patterns in the adult.


Lysyl hydroxylase catalyzes the hydroxylation of lysine residues in collagenous sequences. Three isoforms (LH1, LH2 and LH3) of lysyl hydroxylase have been characterized, and LH2 is present as two alternatively spliced forms. In order to better understand the functional differences between the isoforms in vivo, the expression of the different isoforms was… (More)
