A study on distribution of different hydroxyproline fractions in the bovine ocular tissues


The purpose of this study was to determine the content of total, free, peptide-bound, protein-bound, soluble- and insoluble-collagen hydroxyproline (Hyp) in tissues of bovine eye. The results show that lens had the highest content of free Hyp. This was followed by cornea, retina, iris and aqueous humor. The difference between the Hyp content of lens and… (More)
