Plasma membrane Proteoglycan molecule Proteoglycan complex Polysaccharide molecule Collagen Fiber Integrin Microfilaments of cytoskeleton Proteoglycan molecules form complexes by noncovalently attaching to long polysaccharide molecules Collagen fibers are embedded in a web of proteoglycan complexes Integrins are membrane proteins that are bound to the ECM on one side and to microfilaments on the cytoskeleton on the other. This linkage can transmit stimuli between the cell’s external environment and its interior. Fibronectins attach the ECM to the plasma membrane of the cell Heparan sulphate structure Components of the extracellular matrix Anionic polysaccharide chains Fibrous proteins

Physical Properties Gels of high viscosity, and a great lubricant since at high shear its viscosity drops, but remains resilient Interglycosidic H-bonding restricts rotations across glycosidic bonds Promotes rapid recovery after mechanical perturbations Hydrated matrices rich in hyaluronan expand the extracellular space, facilitating cell migration. There is both a polar and a hydrophobic face for interaction with other macromolecules After Hascall and Laurent

HA synthase(s) located in plasma membrane Copolymerization of UDP-GlcNAc and UDP-GlcA occurs independently of a core protein HA can contain 250-25,000 disaccharides (10 5 - 4x 10 7 Da, ~10 μm, the length of an erythrocyte) Half-life rate ranges from 2 weeks in synovial fluid to 5 minutes in the bloodstream
