Keratan Sulphate - CAS 9056-36-4

Keratan sulfate(Cat No.:R036999), is a complex carbohydrate molecule found in the extracellular matrix of connective tissues, particularly in the cornea, cartilage, and bone. It is a type of glycosaminoglycan (GAG) and is a critical component of proteoglycans, which provide structural support to tissues and organs. Keratan sulfate is known for its role in maintaining tissue integrity, hydration, and lubrication. It is also involved in various biological processes, including cell signaling. Due to its presence in the cornea, keratan sulfate is of particular interest in the study of eye health and diseases, such as keratoconus.
