Abstract

Glucosyl-galactosyl-hydroxylysine (GGHYL) and galactosyl-hydroxylysine (GHYL) are constituents of collagen protein. The ratio of the two hydroxylysine glycosides varies with the collagen type and, moreover, for a given collagen type, it also varies according to the connective tissue. For example, in type I collagen (the most abundant in the body), the GGHYL GHYL ratio tends to be greater in soft connective tissues and lower in bone. The hydroxylysine glycosides are not recycled during collagen turnover and are excreted in the urine. Therefore, the urinary GGHYL GHYL ratio, which reflects the proportion of the two metabolites in the various collagens, may indicate the type of connective tissue affected by pathological turnover, and may thus be a promising marker of bone metabolism. In this paper a method is described for the measurement of urinary hydroxylysine glycosides by reversed-phase liquid chromatography after purification of the sample by solid-phase extraction. The method presented is analytically reliable and suitable for routine use in a clinical laboratory.
