Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are a family of linear anionic polysaccharides that are typically isolated as proteoglycans linked to a protein core. Heparin and heparan sulfate have been the subject of intensive study because of their well-recognized ability to bind many different proteins that regulated a varity of important biological processes. Heparin and heparan sulfate GAGs are comprised of alternating 1-4 linked glycosamine and uronic acid residuces. Heparin, a sulfated glycosaminoglycan… CONTINUE READING
