Scholarcy highlights

  • This chapter looks at hyaluronan's biological role in comparison with the molecular evolutions of other biopolymers such as proteins, nucleic acids and polysaccharides
  • There are three periods in ontogenesis: the period of embryonic development starting from fertilization up to the birth, the period of growth and sexual maturity and the ageing period
  • Most Hyaluronic Acid is synthesized in the embryonic period
  • Signalling pathways today are not considered as linear sequences of biochemical modifications, but rather as networks of the varying levels of complexity
  • These networks are initiated by extracellular ligands, which interact with other receptors of the cell surface
