From: Glycosaminoglycan profiles of repair tissue formed following autologous chondrocyte implantation differ from control cartilage

Figure 4

Proportions of chondroitin sulphate (CS), hyaluronan (HA), and keratan sulphate (KS) in the biopsies. Proportions of HA, CS, and KS in biopsies from (a) patients 1 year after autologous chondrocyte implantation and (b) controls. Each glycosaminoglycan (GAG), with its constituent disaccharide and monosaccharide component, is expressed as a total percentage of GAGs analysed by fluorophore-assisted carbohydrate electrophoresis.
