Chondroitin sulfate A sodium salt - Average MW 20,000 - 30,000
The disaccharide repeating unit of chondroitin sulphate consists of N-acetyl galactosamine sulphate linked β1,4 to glucuronic acid. Each monosaccharide may be left unsulphated, sulphated once, or sulphated twice. The most common pattern is that the hydroxyl groups of the 4 and 6 positions of the N-acetyl-galactosamine are sulphated, with some chains having the position 2 of the glucuronic acid sulphated.
