We are now offering a range of three heparinase enzymes that degrade glycosaminoglycans. All are sourced from native (non-recombinant) strains of Flavobacterium heparinum and are lysases (eliminases), cleaving glycosidic links between amino sugars and uronic acids. A C4-C5 double bond is created in the uronic acid that absorbs at 232 nm and can be used for the detection of products.

The AFFINDEXTM columns comprise our HAEMODEXTM A and B trisaccharides linked to Sepharose FF (AFF101 and AFF102) or Sepharose 4B (AFF201 and AFF202) for use as affinity matrices in research applications. The oligosaccharides are covalently linked to the polysaccharide gel via a 10-atom spacer to overcome steric hindrance.
