==Estrutura do queratán sulfato==
==Keratan sulfate structure==
Like other [[glycosaminoglycan]]s keratan sulfate is a linear [[polymer]] that consists of a repeating [[disaccharide]] unit. Keratan sulfate occurs as a [[proteoglycan]] (PG) in which KS chains are attached to [[cell-surface]] or [[extracellular matrix]] proteins, termed core proteins. KS core proteins include [[Lumican]], [[Keratocan]], [[Mimecan]], [[Fibromodulin]], [[PRELP]], [[Osteoadherin]] and [[Aggrecan]].
The monosaccharide [[mannose]] is found within the linkage region of keratan sulfate type I (KSI). Disaccharides within the repeating region of KSII may be [[fucose|fucosylated]] and [[N-Acetylneuraminic acid]] caps the end of all keratan sulfate type II (KSII) chains and up to 70% of KSI type chains.<ref name=funderburgh>{{cite journal | author = Funderburgh JL. | title = Keratan sulfate: structure, biosynthesis, and function | journal = Glycobiology | year=2000 | volume=10 | issue =10 | pages=951–958 | pmid = 11030741 | doi = 10.1093/glycob/10.10.951}}</ref>
===KSTipos classesde queratán sulfato===
The designations KSI and KSII were originally assigned on the basis of the tissue type from which the keratan sulfate was isolated. KSI was isolated from [[corneal]] tissue and KSII from [[skeletal]] tissue.<ref>{{cite journal | author = Meyer K, Linker A.

However, major differences occur in the way each KS type is joined to its core protein.<ref>{{cite journal | author = Seno N, Meyer K. ''et al.'' | title = Variations in Keratosulfates | journal = J.

KSI is [[Glycans#N-Linked glycans|N-linked]] to specific [[asparagine]] [[amino acid]]s via [[N-Acetylglucosamine|''N''-acetylglucosamine]] and KSII is [[Glycans#O-Linked glycans|O-linked]] to specific [[Serine]] or [[Threonine]] amino acids via [[N-acetyl galactosamine]].<ref>{{cite journal | author = Nieduszynski IA, Huckerby TN.
