The cartilage proteoglycan aggregate: assembly through combined protein-carbohydrate and protein-protein interactions.

Abstract

In vitro reassembled aggregates of cartilage proteoglycan (aggrecan) were studied by glycerol spraying/rotary shadowing electron microscopy and compared to the corresponding native (i.e. never dissociated) structures. In both cases a tightly packed central filament structure was observed consisting of the hyaluronate binding region (HABR) of the… (More)
