Abstract

We reported previously that the extracellular matrix of a connective tissue may be characterized by the ratio of the heterosaccharides (of the structural glycoproteins) to glycosaminoglycans and to hydroxylysineglycosides of collagen (Robert et al., 1965; Moczar and Moczar, 1970a; Moczar et al., 1970; Robert and Robert, 1970).
