 Synonyms & Historicals
Heparin .
Heparin Sodium .
Liquaemin .
Sodium Heparin .
Unfractionated Heparin .
Heparin, Sodium .
Heparin, Unfractionated .
alpha Heparin .
alpha-Heparin .
Heparinic Acid .
A highly acidic mucopolysaccharide formed of equal parts of sulfated D-glucosamine and D-glucuronic acid with sulfaminic bridges. The molecular weight ranges from six to twenty thousand. Heparin occurs in and is obtained from liver, lung, mast cells, etc., of vertebrates. Its function is unknown, but it is used to prevent blood clotting in vivo and vitro, in the form of many different salts. .
Heparin Lyase .
Neutralase .
Eliminase, Heparin .
Lyase, Heparin .
Heparin Eliminase .
Heparinase .
Heparinase I .
An enzyme of the isomerase class that catalyzes the eliminative cleavage of polysaccharides containing 1,4-linked D-glucuronate or L-iduronate residues and 1,4-alpha-linked 2-sulfoamino-2-deoxy-6-sulfo-D-glucose residues to give oligosaccharides with terminal 4-deoxy-alpha-D-gluc-4-enuronosyl groups at their non-reducing ends. (From Enzyme Nomenclature, 1992) EC .
Heparinoids .
Ateroid .
Atheroid .
Heparinoid .
Heparin derivatives. The term has also been used more loosely to include naturally occurring and synthetic highly-sulphated polysaccharides of similar structure. Heparinoid preparations have been used for a wide range of applications including as anticoagulants and anti-inflammatories and they have been claimed to have hypolipidemic properties. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th, p232) .
Dermatan Sulfate .
Sulfate B, Chondroitin .
Sulfate, Dermatan .
beta Heparin .
beta-Heparin .
Chondroitin Sulfate B .
A naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan found mostly in the skin and in connective tissue. It differs from CHONDROITIN SULFATE A (see CHONDROITIN SULFATES) by containing IDURONIC ACID in place of glucuronic acid, its epimer, at carbon atom 5. (from Merck, 12th ed) .
