Leprecan is a protein associated with osteogenesis imperfecta[1] type VIII.

Leprecan is part of a superfamily of 2OG-Fe(II) dioxygenase, along with DNA repair protein AlkB, and disease resistant EGL-9. The enzyme was found to be a type of hydroxylases used in the substrate formation of protein glysosylation.[2]
