Electron histochemical investigations of mammalian and echinoderm tissues, using cupromeronic blue to stain proteoglycans (PGs) specifically in critical electrolyte concentration methods, showed that collagen fibrils are associated with keratan sulphate and chondroitin (dermatan) sulphate ('tadpole') PGs at the a, c, d and e bands on the fibril surface, giving rise to the 'one proteoglycan: one binding site' hypothesis. Intra-fibrillar PGs have been observed, distributed in a regular way which… CONTINUE READING
