Summaries for LOXL2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LOXL2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the lysyl oxidase gene family. The prototypic member of the family is essential to the biogenesis of connective tissue, encoding an extracellular copper-dependent amine oxidase that catalyses the first step in the formation of crosslinks in collagens and elastin. A highly conserved amino acid sequence at the C-terminus end appears to be sufficient for amine oxidase activity, suggesting that each family member may retain this function. The N-terminus is poorly conserved and may impart additional roles in developmental regulation, senescence, tumor suppression, cell growth control, and chemotaxis to each member of the family.

GeneCards Summary for LOXL2 Gene

LOXL2 (Lysyl Oxidase-Like 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Degradation of the extracellular matrix and Elastic fibre formation. GO annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and electron carrier activity. An important paralog of this gene is LOXL1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LOXL2 Gene

  • Mediates the post-translational oxidative deamination of lysine residues on target proteins leading to the formation of deaminated lysine (allysine). When secreted in extracellular matrix, promotes cross-linking of extracellular matrix proteins by mediating oxidative deamination of peptidyl lysine residues in precursors to fibrous collagen and elastin. Acts as a regulator of sprouting angiogenesis, probably via collagen IV scaffolding. When nuclear, acts as a transcription corepressor and specifically mediates deamination of trimethylated Lys-4 of histone H3 (H3K4me3), a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. Involved in epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) via interaction with SNAI1 and participates in repression of E-cadherin, probably by mediating deamination of histone H3. Also involved in E-cadherin repression following hypoxia, a hallmark of epithelial to mesenchymal transition believed to amplify tumor aggressiveness, suggesting that it may play a role in tumor progression. Acts as a regulator of chondrocyte differentiation, probably by regulating expression of factors that control chondrocyte differentiation.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Component of some chromatin repressor complex. Interacts with SNAI1.
    Miscellaneous:
    • Its overexpression in a number of cancer and its ability to promote epithelial to mesenchymal transition suggest that LOXL2 might play a role in tumor progression: expression is correlated with metastasis and decreased survival in patients with aggressive breast cancer (PubMed:21732535). Allosteric inhibition by AB0023 inhibits formation of the tumor microenvironment and reduces metastatic tumor burden in xenograft models (PubMed:20818376 and PubMed:21732535). However, inhibiting the enzyme activity of LOXL2 may not be sufficient, since mutants that lack enzyme activity or inhibition of the activity by AB0023 antibody does not prevent inhibition of the differentiation of keratinocytes, thereby promoting development of squamous cell carcinomas (PubMed:22157764).
