Genetic analysis of proteoglycan structure, function and metabolism

Curr Opin Cell Biol. 1991 Oct;3(5):805-16. doi: 10.1016/0955-0674(91)90054-3.


Significant progress has been made in understanding the structure, function, and metabolism of proteoglycans. Many of the advances derive from the application of recombinant DNA methodology to their core proteins and from the characterization of animal cell mutants altered in glycosaminoglycan synthesis.
