Abstract: Proteoglycans (PGs) are proteins that carry one or more negatively charged glycosaminoglycan (GAG) chains. Proteoglycans have been identified in essentially all multicellular organisms, and are implicated in a wide range of biological and pathological processes. To further decipher the influence of GAG glycosylation on biological and pathological events in humans, detailed structural characterization of PGs/GAGs is needed. However, studying the PGs/GAGs is very challenging and has been ham... more
