Biglycan and chondroitin sulfate play pivotal roles in bone toughness via retaining bound water in bone mineral matrix
(Matrix Biology;Vol. 94, 9/28/2020)
Recent in vitro evidence shows that glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and proteoglycans (PGs) in bone matrix may functionally be involved in the tissue-level toughness of bone. In this study, we showed the effect of biglycan (Bgn), ...
