What is the importance of Proteoglycans in collagen?

Proteoglycans promotes the production of collagen and hyluronic acid. Proteoglycans are proteins found in the connective tissue of the body.  Proteoglycans are a class of glycoproteins of high molecular weight that are found especially in the extracellular matrix of connective tissue. It is a remarkable material as the third vital component after collagen and hyaluronic acid, and Type II collagen, it is a currently discussed topic as a main component of articular cartilage

Articular cartilage is a gelatinous bluish tissue covering the tip of the bone and it has the structure that Proteoglycan tangles reticulate frame of type II collagen fiber. It is 4-6mm thick, softer than bone and contains synovial which contains hyaluronic acid as a main component. Articular cartilage has lubricant properties that allow the bones to glide over each other with very little friction. Healthy cartilage in our joints makes it easier to move.
