In such cases, more adipose tissue is present and other more adipose or skin-related markers, such as hydroxylysine or hydroxyproline [32-33], could be included in the blood analysis.
Measurement of hydroxylysine glucosides in urine and its application to spinal cord injury.
Cross-linking is predominantly due to Schiff's base formation between the amino groups of lysine or hydroxylysine side groups of gelatin and the available aldehyde.
Urinary calcium Urinary hydroxyproline Urinary pyridinoline/deoxypyridinoline Teleopeptides Tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase Hydroxylysine glycosides
Bone resorption markers galactosyl hydroxylysine, pyridinium crosslinks, and hydroxyproline compared.
The cross-linking initiated by GA occurs by reaction of the GA aldehyde groups with two collagen a-amine groups of either lysine or hydroxylysine residues.
We have shown previously (6-8) that this is also true for the urinary excretion of two collagen breakdown products, galactosyl hydroxylysine (Gal-Hyl) [4] and deoxypyridinoline (DPD).
9% for 1-methylhistidine to 17% for arginine, with the exception of hydroxylysine (22%).
Type 1 collagen, rich in the amino acid hydroxyproline, has a triple helix structure, with strands connected by cross-links between lysine or hydroxylysine residues that join the nonhelical amino- and carboxy-terminal ends of one collagen molecule to the helical portion of an adjacent molecule (1).
The most sensitive and specific markers of bone resorption have been based on measurement of urinary analytes, such as deoxypyridinoline (Dpd), [1] telopeptide fragments of type I collagen, and galactosyl hydroxylysine (1).
Trifunctional pyridinium cross-links--pyridinoline (Pyd) or deoxypyridinoline (Dpd)--form between hydroxylysine or lysine residues at the C- and N-telopeptide ends of one collagen molecule and the helical portion of a neighboring molecule during collagen maturation [2].
