In the course of structural studies on sulfated oligosaccharides isolated from porcine intestinal heparin after extensive digestion with Flavobacterium heparinase, we isolated several heparitinase-resistant unsaturated oligosaccharides. Amino sugar analysis of these oligosaccharides indicated that they contained galactosamine residues but no glucosamine residues. They were sensitive to chondroitinase ABC but resistant to chondroitinase AC-II, and therefore derived from dermatan sulfate, which… CONTINUE READING
