Proteoglycans (PGs) are widely expressed in all areas of the brain. In this study, the keratan sulfate-containing PGs (KS-PGs) from cerebrum (CB), cerebellum (CL) and brainstem (BS) of young sheep brain were isolated, purified and characterized. The amount of KS-PGs in CL was significantly lower than that in CB and BS. KS-PGs were characterized by increased(More)
Recent advances in the structural biology of chondroitin sulfate chains have suggested important biological functions in the development of the brain. Several studies have demonstrated that the composition of chondroitin sulfate chains changes with aging and normal brain maturation. In this study, we determined the concentration of all glycosaminoglycan(More)
