Dr Duke's list of Plants Containing HYDROXYPROLINE



Type of Spiritual Experience


Hydroxyproline is a major component of the protein collagen. Hydroxyproline and proline play key roles for collagen stability. They permit the sharp twisting of the collagen helix.

"In the canonical collagen Xaa-Yaa-Gly triad (where Xaa and Yaa are any amino acid), a proline occupying the Yaa position is hydroxylated to give a Xaa-Hyp-Gly sequence. This modification of the proline residue increases the stability of the collagen triple helix"

In addition to collagen, elastin and argonaute 2 have collagen-like domains in which hydroxyproline is formed.
