Hydroxylysine was first isolated from gelatin (2) and probably does not occur in proteins of mammalian origin other than collagen (3). In rats, dietary lysine is an obligatory precursor of the hydroxylysine of collagen (4-7); when 14C-labeled lysine is either fed or given by injection it is incorporated into both the lysine and hydroxylysine of collagen… CONTINUE READING
