LOXL2, also named as WS9-14, belongs to an amine oxidase family whose members have been implicated in crosslink formation in stromal collagens and elastin, cell motility, and tumor development and progression. LOXL2 activity might be a crucial modulator of Snail, providing an additional control mechanism of EMT and tumor progression. Increased LOXL2 expression in colon and esophageal cancer may contribute to tumor progression. We detected a band about 100 kd which is a secretory mature LOXL2 protein modified by glycosylation (PMID: 24014025).
