Abstract

Some biochemical characteristics of collagen extracted from granulation tissue were studied and compared with those of normal skin and scar. By using electrophoretic techniques the type III collagen content was confirmed to be significantly greater in granulation tissue and lower in scar with respect to normal skin. The chromatographic determination of hydroxylysine (Hyl) glycosides in collagen extracted from granulation tissue showed a significant increase in both the degree of Hyl glycosylation and in the di-/monoglycoside ratio, while both parameters turned out to be lower in scar. These data suggest that the degree of Hyl glycosylation and the di-/monoglycoside ratio could represent an index of the degree of collagen fiber maturation
