Proteoglycans (PGs) - a family of macromolecules composed of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) covalently linked to a protein core - are widely distributed in human and animal tissue and appear to be synthesized by virtually all types of cells. Age-related changes of PGs and GAGs are visible in most tissues investigated so far. This volume provides both an introduction to PG and GAG biochemistry and detailed information about age-related changes of these substances in different organs and tissues. Short outlines are given on PG/GAG changes in the most important diseases of old age as well as on the influences on PG/GAG metabolism and the therapeutic use of these substances. The possible causal role of PGs and GAGs in the aging process is also discussed.
