Abstract

Background: Although it is well-described that proteoglycans (PGs) are among the major non-collagenous components of the matrix which are degraded during periodontal diseases, the relationship between PG metabolism and seventy of periodontal breakdown, the extent of degradation of PGs together with the resulting end-products, and the elimination pathways of these catabolic end-products is likely to need further clarification.
