Glycosylated matrix protein

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapter

Abstract

Connective tissues have many features in common, including resisting and dissipating mechanical load and providing shape, as well as acting to provide barriers regulating water flow and diffusibility of macromolecules. In this chapter we have chosen to focus on cartilage and bone, covering many aspects of connective tissues. We give special focus to the noncollagenous proteins in their matrices.
