The arterial wall is a complex organ system with respect to carbohydrate-protein macromolecules, particularly proteoglycans. Proteoglycans in the arterial wall display polydispersity and heterogeneity even in the same family. At least two major types are known: chondroitin sulphate-dermatan sulphate type and heparan sulphate type. These proteoglycans have… CONTINUE READING
