- ə-tan) a glycosaminoglycan found mostly in the skin but also in blood vessels, tendons, heart valves, and pulmonary connective tissues. It consists of repeating disaccharide units in specific linkage, each composed of a (C-4) sulfated N-acetylgalactosamine linked to a uronic acid, generally L-iduronic acid, which is sometimes sulfated. It is an accumulation product in several of the mucopolysaccharidoses.
