Depending on the nature of the core protein HS-GAGs are attached to, they will either translocate to the cell surface or be secreted into the extracellular matrix (ECM). Here, HS-GAGs are shown to translocate to the cell surface (Kjellen & Lindahl, 1991). The mechanism of transfer from the Golgi apparatus to the cell surface and beyond is unknown but most likely involves the trans-Golgi network.
