Silicon was found to be a constituent of certain glycosaminoglycans and polyuronides, where it occurs firmly bound to the polysaccharide matrix. 330-554 ppm of bound Si were detected in purified hyaluronic acid from umbilical cord, chondroitin 4-sulfate, dermatan sulfate, and heparan sulfate. These amounts correspond to 1 atom of Si per 50,000-85,000(More)
A recent report by Zhao et al. [Zhao, M., Momma, S., Delfani, K., Carlen, M., Cassidy, R. M., Johansson, C. B., Brismar, H., Shupliakov, O., Frisen, J. & Janson, A. M. (2003) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci.

Human osteosarcoma cells express a 78-kDa proteoglycan core protein to which an asparagine-bound oligosaccharide, O-glycosidically linked oligosaccharides and probably only a single chondroitin 6-sulfate chain of 29-kDa are bound. Prior to O-glycosylation, the N-glycosylated core protein exhibits a mass of 83 kDa. Upon digestion of the secreted proteoglycan(More)
