Contents and distributions of the proteoglycans decorin and biglycan in normal and osteoarthritic human articular cartilage.

Abstract

The study was designed to determine the contents and distributions of the proteoglycans decorin and biglycan in adult human femoral condylar cartilage and whether these may change in osteoarthritis. New radioimmunoassays were established using peptides representing the amino-terminal 21 amino acid sequence of each proteoglycan (to which a tyrosine was added… (More)
