Collagen biosynthesis is characterized by the presence of an unusually large number of cotranslational and post-translational modifications, many of which are unique to collagens and a few other proteins with collagen-like amino acid sequences. The posttranslational processing of procollagens can be regarded as occurring in two stages (FIGURE 1). Intracellular modifications, together with synthesis of the polypeptide chains, result in the formation of triple-helical procollagen molecules, and… 
Synthesis of collagen: chemical regulation of post-translational events.
TLDR
Preliminary data is available on the possibilities for using any of these substances to inhibit collagen accumulation in fibrotic processes, including cis-4-hydroxyproline and L-azetidine-2-carboxylic acid.
Molecular Biology of Prolyl 4‐Hydroxylase
TLDR
The main biological function of ascorbate in the prolyl 4-hydroxylase reaction seems to be to act as an alternative oxygen acceptor in the uncoupled catalytic reaction.
Predominant expression of the β subunit of prolyl 4-hydroxylase (disulfide isomerase) in human extravillous trophoblasts
TLDR
The results indicate a difference in the expression of an endoplasmic reticulum marker between villous and extravillous trophoblast, which could be associated with an increased ability to synthesize collagen or other enzymatic reactions associated with prolyl 4-hydroxylase β subunit.
Collagen hydroxylases and the protein disulfide isomerase subunit of prolyl 4-hydroxylases.
TLDR
This review concentrates on recent progress toward understanding the detailed mechanism of 4-hydroxylase action, including: occurrence and function of the enzyme in animals; general molecular properties; and intracellular sites of hydroxylation.
Non-lysosomal degradation of misfolded human lysozymes with and without an asparagine-linked glycosylation site.
TLDR
A mutant protein, [Ala128], which cannot fold because it lacks a disulfide bond, was expressed in mouse fibroblasts and was found to be mostly degraded in the cells, whereas the control wild-type lysozyme was quantitatively secreted into the media, suggesting that there is some interaction between the mechanisms of glycosylation and degradation.
Inhibition of prolyl hydroxylation during collagen biosynthesis in human skin fibroblast cultures by ethyl 3,4-dihydroxybenzoate.
TLDR
Structural analogs of the cofactors or cosubstrates of prolyl 4-hydroxylase, such as ethyl 3,4-dihydroxybenzoate tested here or its further modifications, may serve as inhibitors of posttranslational hydroxylation ofProlyl residues also in vivo.

Posttranslational modifications in the biosynthesis of type IV collagen by a human tumor cell line.
TLDR
Factors responsible for the high extent of intracellular posttranslational modifications in type IV collagens were studied in a cultured human tumor cell line, HT-1080, and differences in the activities of lysyl hydroxylase and the hydroxylysyl glycosyltransferases between the two cell types were explained.
Intracellular Steps in the Biosynthesis of Collagen
TLDR
Collagen biosynthesis involves several unusual posttranslational modifications which occur after assembly of amino acids into the three polypeptide chains of the molecule and which are essential for some of its critical structural features.
Neutral protease cleaving the N-terminal propeptide of type III procollagen: partial purification and characterization of the enzyme from smooth muscle cells of bovine aorta.
TLDR
Procollagen type III amino-terminal protease was detected in cultures of smooth muscle cells of fetal calf aorta, and this prote enzyme was purified about 400-fold, and there was only little if any inhibition by several other proteinase inhibitors tested.
The assembly of tetrameric prolyl hydroxylase in tendon fibroblasts from newly synthesized alpha-subunits and from preformed cross-reacting protein.
TLDR
The data presented here indicate that the active tetrameric form of prolyl hydroxylase in cells is assembled from alpha-sub units which are newly synthesized, and from beta-subunits which are derived from cross-reacting protein.
Formation of the triple helix of type I procollagen in cellulo. Temperature-dependent kinetics support a model based on cis in equilibrium trans isomerization of peptide bonds.
TLDR
The temperature dependence of the rate of triple-helix formation in cellulo showed a strong, positive dependence on temperature, as expected, and the activation energy was in satisfactory agreement with independent direct determinations of this parameter for cis-trans isomerizations.
Regulation of collagen post-translational modification in transformed human and chick-embryo cells.
TLDR
Changes in the regulation of collagen post-translational modification in transformed cells were studied in three established human sarcoma cell lines and in chick-embryo fibroblasts freshly transformed by Rous Sarcoma virus, suggesting one critical factor affecting modification is the rate of collagen synthesis, which affects the ratio of enzyme to substrate in the cell.
