It is, therefore, not unreasonable to assume that the bionsynthesis of the repeating disaccharide units in the chondroitin sulfate chain is affected little by the aging process. DISCUSSION Cartilage proteoglycan is composed of a protein core to which a large number of highly negatively charged chondroitin sulfates and a relatively small number of keratan sulfates are covalently attached, in the model proposed by Heineg£rd and Hascall (21). Recently, Inerot et al. (4) indicated that the structural change of proteoglycan macromolecules of articular cartilage with age was probably due to a diminishing of the chondroitin sulfate-rich region, whereas the hyaluronic acid-binding region and the keratan sulfate-rich region remain comparatively constant.

These oells will subsequently be referred to as senesoent oells. Epithelial-like oells from fetal human liver were oultivated in a chemioally defined medium supplemented with 10S fetal bovine serum, and in the presenoe of irradiated feeder oells (12).
