Proteoglycan extraction of sized cartilage particles.


The relationship between cartilage thickness and proteoglycan extractability was examined. Bovine nasal cartilage slices (20, 100, and 500 micron thicknesses) were extracted with low-ionic-strength buffer and 4 M guanidine hydrochloride. The extractability of proteoglycans with both solutions depended on slice thickness. Thinner slices yielded greater… (More)
