Default EDS Lysyl oxidase or lysyl hydroxylase?

So i know that Procollagen peptidase def is associated with EDS. But what is the other enzyme deficience? Lysyl HYDROXYLASE or LYsyl OXIDASE?
Im confused... Prolyl and lysyl hydroxylase problem is in scurvy (vit c def), and lysyl oxidase works extracellularly, covalent binding , problem in Menkes (Cu def).. But what is the problem in EDS?
Help much appreciated
