S5.18 Iduronic acid-rich proteoglycans and post-burn scar maturation: Isolation and characterization


Remodeling of human burn tissue involving loss of dermis results in different types of scarring. Iduronic acid-rich proteoglycans (PGs) are important macromolecules present in skin. Close association of these molecules with collagen suggests that PGs influence collagen fibril formation. A recent study found that the core protein of PG interacts with… (More)
