Lumican and decorin, two members of the small leucine-rich repeat proteoglycan (SLRP) family, have been implicated as regulators of collagen I fibril structure in different tissues. Both proteoglycans consist of a core protein and a glycosaminoglycan (GAG) chain, but quantitative information regarding the precise role of the protein and GAG moieties in… CONTINUE READING
