Cover for Hydroxyproline metabolism in microorganisms.

L-Hydroxyproline (L-Hyp) has been detected in certain proteins, particularly collagen, as well as in some peptide antibiotics. In mammalian systems, the L-proline residue in procollagen is post-translationally hydroxylated to trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline (T4LHyp) or trans-3-hydroxyl-proline (T3 LHyp). ...
