Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.1.1)
Predicted to enable procollagen-lysine 5-dioxygenase activity. Predicted to be involved in hydroxylysine biosynthetic process and peptidyl-lysine hydroxylation. Predicted to be located in membrane. Predicted to be active in endoplasmic reticulum. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; cardiovascular system; sensory organ; and skeleton. Orthologous to human PLOD2 (procollagen-lysine,2-oxoglutarate 5-dioxygenase 2).
