Glycosaminoglycans in components of the rabbit eye: synthesis and characterization
(Swets Zeitlinger Publishers, 1999-08-01)
Purpose. To trace the eye components involved in proteoglycan synthesis and to characterize the sulfated glycosaminoglycans which are associated to these macromolecules.Methods. Sodium [S-35]-sulfate was injected intravitreally ...
Adapted colorimetric method for measurement of feline urinary glycosaminoglycans
Several methods have been employed to quantify urinary glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), such as chromatography associated with electrophoresis and colorimetric methods, cheaper and faster ones, which employ mainly azure A and ...
Evaluation of reliability for urine mucopolysaccharidosis screening by dimethylmethylene blue and Berry spot tests
Background: The mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) are a group of inherited metabolic disorders resulting from the deficiency of the enzyme responsible for intralysosomal catabolism of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). GAGs are progressively ...
Ultrastructural evaluation of gingival glycosaminoglycans in ovariectomized rats: Effects of steroid hormone therapy
Background/Aims: To evaluate the behavior of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in rat gingiva and the effects of lack of sexual steroids and the hormonal therapy with estrogen and dexamethasone (DEX). Methods: 40 female rats were ...
Detection of glycosaminoglycans of the articular cartilage matrix in the synovial fluid of equine carpal joint with chip fracture Detección de glicosaminoglicanos de la matriz del cartílago articular en el líquido sinovial de carpo equino con fractura en
The purpose of this study was to establish if the duration of chip fracture in equine carpal joint of purebred horses, affects the synovial concentration of total glycosaminoglycans (GAGsT) and glycosaminoglycans that are ...
Distribution of small proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans in humerus-related articular cartilage of chickens

Urinary glycosaminoglycans in horse osteoarthritis. Effects of chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine
(ELSEVIER SCI LTDOXFORD, 2012)
Our objectives were to characterize the urinary excretion of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in horse osteoarthritis, and to investigate the effects of chondroitin sulfate (CS) and glucosamine (GlcN) upon the disease. Urinary ...
Concentration of glycosaminoglycan, aldehydes and protein in synovial fluid from normal and damaged equine metacarpophalangeal joints Contenido de glicosaminoglicanos, aldehídos y proteínas en el líquido sinovial de la articulación metacarpofalángica equi
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of severity of osteoarthritis on the concentration of degradation products from the cartilage extracellular matrix on synovial fluid. Total protein and aldehyde group ...
Effect of different glycosaminoglycans in a guinea-pig carotid-artery thrombosis model
(Elsevier B.V., 1994-09-15)
Heparin is the most frequently used drug for the prevention and treatment of thrombosis. Its use, however, is restricted by its side-effects. To study the efficacy of other glycosaminoglycans that could substitute heparin ...
