Proteoglycans and Wound Repair

  • John R. Couchman
  • Magnus Höök


Proteoglycans consist of a protein core to which linear polysaccharides called glycosaminoglycans are covalently linked. This chapter discusses not only proteoglycans, but also hyaluronic acid, which is not covalently bound to protein and therefore does not qualify as a proteoglycan. However, since hyaluronic acid with its repeating disaccharide structure belongs to the family of glycosaminoglycans and has important biologic functions, it is included. The structure of proteoglycans may vary considerably, depending on the size and composition of the core proteins and the size and number of polysaccha-ride chains. The number of glycosaminoglycan classes is quite small, but some contain a heterodisperse population, in which fine structural variability results in the potential for hundreds of glycosaminoglycan species. It is also becoming clear that each proteoglycan class may contain members with distinctly different core proteins. The net result is the potential for a large variety of proteoglycans within the vertebrate body. Some of these proteoglycans appear to have a general distribution throughout the animal body, whereas others show a high degree of tissue specificity.
