Extracellular KSPG translocates to the lysosome for degradation (R-HSA-2046239) [Homo sapiens]

Black Box Event

As part of the natural turnover of GAGs, extracellular KSPGs translocate to the lysosome to be degraded. The translocation process is unsure but could be either endocytosis from outside the cell or autophagy from inside the cell (Winchester 2005).
