Literature associating LEPREL1 and myopia
Myxoid liposarcoma-associated protein 4; Prolyl 3-hydroxylase that catalyzes the post- translational formation of 3-hydroxyproline on collagens. Contributes to proline 3-hydroxylation of collagen COL4A1 and COL1A1 in tendons, the eye sclera and in the eye lens capsule (By similarity). Has high activity with the type IV collagen COL4A1, and lower activity with COL1A1. Catalyzes hydroxylation of the first Pro in Gly-Pro-Hyp sequences where Hyp is 4-hydroxyproline. Has no activity on substrates that lack 4- hydroxyproline in the third position; Belongs to the leprecan family.
