Prenylcysteine oxidase (IPR017046)

Short name: Prenylcysteine_Oxase

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



This entry represents a characterised prenylcysteine oxidase (originally thought to be a prenylcysteine lyase) and homologues that are predicted to have the same function. The human enzyme is part of the lysosome and functions in the degradation of prenylated proteins, cleaving the thioether bond of prenyl-L-cysteines, such as farnesylcysteine and geranylgeranylcysteine [PMID: 10585463].
