	We have managed to produce a limited amount of protein 
sequence by edman degredation,  unfortunatly one of these contains 
two hydroxy-lysines.  

	We wish to use these protein sequences to devise degenerate 
oligos so we want to know:-

	What was hydroxy-lysine (OH-lys) before it was altered? 

	Is this an artifact?

	Has OH-lys been found in proteins _other_ than collagen?
And if so what was it doing there?
