The heterogeneity of the non-aggregating proteoglycans of the human intervertebral disc.


Non-aggregating proteoglycans of differing average hydrodynamic volumes were prepared from nuclei pulposi and anuli fibrosi of three human lumbar spines and characterized by biochemical and immunochemical analyses. The hexose-to-hexuronate and protein-to-hexuronate ratios increased with decreasing hydrodynamic volume. Analysis by composite agarose… (More)
