I think it's a very direct question ^^;
Thank you!

My notes says it is a mucopolysaccharide, but I can't find it on any other text.

It is a mucopolysaccharide -

Here is a link:

There are other classifications of mucopolysaccharides - glycosaminoglycans -- GAG for short. This probably got in the way of youe search.
