We have devised a sensitive method for the isolation and structural analysis of glycosaminoglycans from two genetically tractable model organisms, the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, and the nematode, Caenorhabditis elegans. We detected chondroitin/chondroitin sulfate- and heparan sulfate-derived disaccharides in both organisms. Chondroitinase digestion of glycosaminoglycans from adult Drosophila produced both nonsulfated and 4-O-sulfated unsaturated disaccharides, whereas only unsulfated… CONTINUE READING
