Application

Chondroitin appears to play a regulatory role for chondrocytes, neural cells, and some tumor cells. Chondroitin sulfate B is used to study ß peptide (1-42) cytotoxicity.

Biochem/physiol Actions

As a large, negatively charged, hydrophilic molecule that is too inflexible to fold into a compact globular structure, chondroitin sulfate molecules form porous hydrated gels, providing mechanical support to tissue and allowing rapid diffusion of water-soluble molecules and migration of cells.

Components

Chondroitin Sulfate A is an acidic mucopolysaccharide found in cartilage, skin, cornea, and umbilical cord. It is composed of alternating N-acetylgalactosamine, D-glucuronic acid, and sulfate residues in equimolar quantities where carbon 4 of the N-acetylgalactosamines is sulfated.

Caution

Store this product at 2-8°C.

Articles

Glycosaminoglycans and Proteoglycans

There are five identified glycosaminoglycan chains (see Figure 1): Hyaluronan is not sulfated, but the other glycosaminoglycan chains contain sulfate substituents at various positions of the chain.

Glycosaminoglycan Sulfation and Signaling

Glycosaminoglycans are large linear polysaccharides constructed of repeating disaccharide units.
