Found inMeSH browser, Aug. 1, 2007 (Chondroitin Sulfates. Scope note: Derivatives of chondroitinwhich have a sulfate moiety esterified to the galactosamine moiety of chondroitin. Chondroitin sulfate B (beta heparin; dermatan sulfate) is a misnomer and this compound is not a true chondroitin sulfate.)
Oxford dict. of biochemistry and molecular biology, 2006 (chondroitin sulfate: any member of a group of 10-60 kDa glycosaminoglycans widely distributed in cartilage and other mammalian connective tissue. Two subgroups exist.)
Inter. dict. med. biol. (chondroitin sulfate: a glycosaminoglycan composed of alternate residues of beta-D-glucuronic acid, glycosated on O-4, and beta-D-N-acetylgalactosamine 4- or 6-sulfate, glycosated on O-3. Both chondroitin 4-sulfate and chondroitin 6-sulfate occur, and are a major constituent of cartilage.)
Artihritis Foundation Alternative therapies Web site, Aug. 1, 2007 (Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are substances found naturally in the body. Glucosamine is a form of amino sugar that is believed to play a role in cartilage formation and repair. Chondroitin sulfate is part of a large protein molecule (proteoglycan) that gives cartilage elasticity. Both glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are sold as dietary or nutritional supplements.)
