Chondroitin sulfate sodium is the sodium salt of a sulfated linear glycosaminoglycan derived from the cartilages of healthy and domestic animals utilized for food.
|Indications and Uses|| |
Chondroitin's actions are heavily influenced by the features of the overall proteoglycan of which it is a component. These roles can be broadly classified as structural or regulatory. This distinction is not absolute, as some proteoglycans serve both structural and regulatory functions (see versican).
Chondroitin sulfate is a key component of the extracellular matrix and is essential for tissue structural integrity. This function is shared by the lecticans, which are big aggregating proteoglycans that include aggrecan, versican, brevican, and neurocan.
