Proteoglycans/glycosaminoglicans, a family of which proteochondroitin sulphate is part, are the structural elements of the interstitial matrix components. Glycosaminoglicans are non-branched polysaccharide chains and it is estimated that they can absorb up to 50 cc. of water per gram of dry weight. The main function of PG/GAGs is to maintain isoionia, isotonia and isosmia of the matrix, as well as participating in all metabolic and nutritional processes of the cell, causing a filtrating effect of all molecules reaching the matrix.
