Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are a family of linear polysaccharides that are found in all animal tissues. Several are used as biomaterials, including heparin, heparin sulfate, keratan sulfate, dermatan sulfate, and chondroitin sulfate.
This volume discusses the role of GAGs in development, health and disease.
Researchers, professors and graduate students in biochemistry, chemistry, molecular biology, biotechnology, and medicine.
