Protein-lysine-6 oxidase; LOX (EC, a 30kD copper-containing amine oxidase, belongs to a heterogeneous family of enzymes that oxidize primary amine substrates to reactive aldehydes. It plays a vital role in the formation and repair of ECM. Localized both in the cytosol and nucleus, it catalyzes the oxidation and deamination of epsilon-NH2 group of lysine and hydroxylysine residues to alpha-aminoadipic-delta-semialdehyde. This is the first step that initiates the covalent cross-linking of collagen and tropoelastin resulting in the formation of insoluble collagen and elastic fibers in the extracellular matrix. LOX is a multifunctional enzyme having diverse biological functions such as developmental regulation, tumor suppression, cell motility and cellular senescence. Deficiency of LOX is seen in certain carcinomas and 3X-linked recessive human connective tissue disordersóCutis Laxa.
