Iron (II)/2-oxoglutarate (2-OG)-dependent oxygenases catalyse oxidative reactions in a range of metabolic processes including the hydroxylation of proline and lysine residues during the post-translational modification of collagen. 2-OG oxygenases commonly require ascorbate for full activity. In the vitamin C deficient disease, scurvy, reduced activity of 2-OG oxygenases results in impaired formation of collagen. Here we report the crystal structure of bacterial proline 3-hydroxylase from Stre...Expand abstract
