Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Salt, from Streptococcus sp is a natural high-viscosity mucopolysaccharide with alternating β1,3-glucuronidic and β1,4-glucosaminidic bonds. Principal glycosaminoglycan in connective tissue fluids. The molecular weight of Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Salt, is in the range of 5.0 x 105 - 1.2 x 106 , as calculated from its limiting viscosity. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an anionic linear glycosaminoglycan composed of monomers of glurcuronic acid and N-acetylglucosamine. HA is widely distributed throughout connective and epithelial tissue and is a chief component of the extracellular matrix. HA contributes to cellular proliferation and may contribute to the progression of malignant tumors.
