Articular cartilage is a bluish gel tissue that covers the tip of the bone. It has a structure in which proteoglycan is tangled in the framework mesh created by type II collagen fibers.
It is 4 to 6mm thick and softer than bones. Its joint fluid (synovial fluid) that is composed mainly of hyaluronic acid has lower lubricating performance than the contact friction of ice and ice.
Because of the above function of the cartilage, we can move our joints smoothly without direct contact of the bone and joint.
Proteoglycan is a kind of glycoprotein in a broad sence that sulfated polysaccharide called glycosaminoglycan
such as chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, heparan sulfate, heparin and keratan sulfate covalently bonded to the protein.
Proteoglycan is present in the extracellular matrix and cell surfaces of animals.
It is also present in the fibrous matrix and the cell surface of hyaluronic acid and collagen, and forming a fibrous matrix proteins and complex of hyaluronic acid and collagen.
