(Science: enzyme) A mixed-function oxygenase that catalyses the hydroxylation of a prolyl-glycyl-containing-peptide, usually in protocollagen, to a hydroxyprolylglycyl-containing-peptide. The enzyme utilises molecular oxygen with a concomitant oxidative decarboxylation of 2-oxoglutarate to succinate.
Chemical name: Procollagen-L-proline,2-oxoglutarate:oxygen oxidoreductase
