Unsaturated Heparin Disaccharides

Structural description

Result of the work of bacterial heparinase on high grade porcine mucosal heparin.
Obtained by high resolution gel filtration and ion exchange chromotography. The uronate (∆UA) contains a C4-C5 double bond due to the action of the heparinases used to depolymerise heparin.
