Decorin is a proteoglycan on average 90 - 140 kilodaltons (kD) in
size.It belongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP)
family and consists of a protein core containing leucine repeats
with a glycosaminoglycan (GAG) chain consisting of either
chondroitin sulfate (CS) or dermatan sulfate (DS).Decorin is a
small cellular or pericellular matrix proteoglycan and is closely
related in structure to biglycan protein. Decorin and biglycan are
thought to be the result of a gene duplication. This protein is a
component of connective tissue, binds to type I collagen fibrils,
and plays a role in matrix assembly.
