glycosaminoglycans


Also found in: Dictionary.

glycosaminoglycans

Mucopolysaccharides, a range of polysaccharides containing amino sugars or monosaccharides in which the -OH group is replaced by an NH2 group. Heparin is a glycosaminoglycan. All six classes contain substantial amounts of D-glucosamine and D-galactosamine.
