Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) or mucopolysaccharides are long linear polysaccharides consisting of repeating disaccharide (double sugar) units. Except for keratan, the repeating unit consists of an amino sugar, along with a uronic sugar or galactose. Because GAGs are highly polar and attract water, they are used in the body as a lubricant or shock. Cancellous bone, also called trabecular or spongy bone, is the internal tissue of the skeletal bone and is an open cell porous network. Cancellous bone has a higher surface-area-to-volume ratio than cortical bone and it is less makes it weaker and more flexible. The greater surface area also makes it suitable for metabolic activities such as the exchange of calcium : Chemical studies of mucopolysaccharides of different tissues as a rule start with proteolytic digestion of the tissues, followed by fractionation of the poly- saccharides by a variety of procedures.

Abstract. There have been a number of recent reviews and monographs devoted to various aspects of the isolation, characterization, and analysis of mucopolysaccharides and glycoproteins (Brimacombe and Webber, ; Gottschalk, ; Neufeld and Ginsburg, ; Quintarelli, ; Rossi and Stoll, ; Hunt, ; Balazs, ; Roy and Trudinger, ; Marshall and Neuberger, ).Cited by: Human Anatomy & Physiology Chapter 2 (emphasis on pages ) Chemical Basis Of Life. main cellular fuel, the chemical energy contained in its bonds is not directly used, but the energy released during glucose catabolism is coupled to the synthesis of ATP.

This inflammatory exudate, which is present in all wounds, contains leukocytes, dead tissue, and cellular debris.
