Propolis Induces Chondroitin/Dermatan Sulphate and Hyaluronic Acid Accumulation in the Skin of Burned Wound

Figure 3

Dynamics of the CS/DS sulfation degree alterations in skin samples taken from the healing wounds (postburn days 3rd, 5th, 10th, 15th, and 21st) treated with propolis, AgSD, propolis vehicle, and NaCl. Day 0—normal skin. Sulfation degree was calculated as the sulfate group content in relation to 100 disaccharide units on the basis of disaccharide profiles generated by chondroitinase ABC action on CS/DS as described in Section 2. The data were analyzed by ANOVA.
