Isolation and structural studies of heparan sulfates and chondroitin sulfates from three species of molluscs.
The isolation and some structural features of heparan sulfates and chondroitin sulfates from three species of molluscs (Pomacea sp., Tagelus gibbus, and Anomalocardia brasiliana) are reported. It isExpand
Structural features and anticoagulant activities of a novel natural low molecular weight heparin from the shrimp Penaeus brasiliensis.
A natural low molecular weight heparin (8.5 kDa), with an anticoagulant activity of 95 IU/mg by the USP assay, was isolated from the shrimp Penaeus brasiliensis. The crustacean heparin wasExpand
Characteristic distribution of heparan sulfates and chondroitin sulfates in tissues and organs of the ampularidae Pomacea sp.
Abstract The sulfated glycosaminoglycan composition of different tissues and organs of the Ampularidae Pomacea sp. is reported. 1. 1. All the tissues and organs analysed contain chondroitin sulfateExpand
A correlation between the sulfated glycosaminoglycan concentration and degree of salinity of the “habitat” in fifteen species of the classes Crustacea, Pelecypoda and Gastropoda
Abstract The sulfated glycosaminoglycan concentration and composition were analysed in 15 species of Crustacea, Pelecypoda and Gastropoda living in different degrees of salinity. 1. 1. All theExpand
A comparative study on the mechanism of the anticoagulant action of mollusc and mammalian heparins.
The anticlotting activities on some steps of the coagulation cascade of mollusc and mammalian heparins were studied. AT III-high affinity heparin is a more potent inhibitor than unfractionatedExpand
