Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are long unbranched polysaccharides, made up of repeating disaccharides that may be sulphated (e.g. Glucuronic acid , Iduronic acid , Galactose, Galactosamine , Glucosamine). GAGs form an important component of connective tissues.
GAG chains may be covalently linked to a protein to form proteoglycans.
