Human 2-oxoglutarate (2OG) oxygenases are involved in a wide range of biological and medicinal processes.[1] Enzymes of the family of Fe(II) and 2OG-dependent oxygenases couple the oxidation of their prime substrate to that of 2OG. Structurally, they share a common double-stranded beta-helix (DSBH) fold and coordinate Fe(II) by a conserved HXD/E...H triad.[2]
