Lysyl oxidase-like S100


Lysyl oxidase-like 2 (LOXL2) is a member of the lysyl oxidase (LOX) protein family that consists of five members (1). All the members of the family contain a highly conserved carboxy-terminal copper-binding domain and a lysyl-tyrosyl quinone cofactor, which are necessary for the amine oxidase activity of these extracellular matrix enzymes (1, 2), and the N-terminal more divergent scavenger receptor cysteine-rich domain, which is thought to determine the individual role and tissue distribution of each isoenzyme (3). In addition to its biological role in proper elastic fiber homeostasis and cardiovascular system development (4, 5), the LOX family proteins has recently been implicated in tumorigenesis and metastasis (6, 7). Up-regulation of LOXL2 has been reported in breast, colon (8), esophageal (8), head- and-neck (9), and oral squamous cell carcinomas (10) and pancreatic cancer (11), although its down-regulation of LOXL2 mRNA has been reported in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (12). It was also reported that LOXL2 overexpression promotes the invasiveness of tumor cells in vivo and in vitro (13, 14). In addition, LOXL2 protein was detected in the serum of 83% of patients with chronic HCV infection, but was not detected in serum from normal healthy donors. This result indicates that LOXL2 is a promising candidate biomarker for the non-invasive assessment of liver fibrosis.
