These findings are discussed with respect to the possible role of hydroxylysine glycosides in limiting collagen fibril diameter. Comparisons of the amino acid sequences around the seven glycoside sites however gave no clues as to what makes some lysyl residues more susceptible to modification than others. The possible reasons for the high extent of lysyl modification in the cornea are also discussed.
