hyaluronic acid

 [hi″ah-loo͡-ron´ik]
a glycosamino-glycan found in lubricating proteoglycans of synovial fluid, vitreous humor, cartilage, blood vessels, skin, and the umbilical cord.

hy·a·lu·ron·ic ac·id

(hī'ă-lū-ron'ik as'id),
A mucopolysaccharide consisting of alternating β1,4-linked residues of hyalobiuronic acid, forming a gelatinous material in the tissue spaces and acting as a lubricant and shock absorbant generally throughout the body; it is hydrolyzed to disaccharide or tetrasaccharide units by hyaluronidase.

n a mucopolysaccharide that forms the gelatinous substance in the tissue spaces. Hyaluronic acid is the intercellular cementing substance found throughout the tissues of the body.

hyaluronic acid

a sulfate-free mucopolysaccharide in the intercellular substance of various tissues, especially the skin; also isolated from the vitreous humor, synovial fluid, umbilical cord, etc. Used therapeutically in degenerative joint disease and in solution as a tear film replacement.
