• GAGs
  • Heparin and HS are GAGs that are synthesized attached to a core protein. (arvojournals.org)
  • GAGS are strongly implicated in inflammation, degenerative diseases, malignancy, microbial and parasitic infections and age-related neural pathologies including Alzheimer's disease. (equl.com)
  • porcine
  • In addition to the bovine and porcine tissue from which pharmaceutical-grade heparin is commonly extracted, it has also been extracted and characterised from: Turkey Whale Dromedary camel Mouse Humans Lobster Fresh water mussel Clam Shrimp Mangrove crab Sand dollar Atlantic salmon Zebra fish The biological activity of heparin within species 6-11 is unclear and further supports the idea that the main physiological role of heparin is not anticoagulation. (wikipedia.org)
  • SPR showed that opticin bound to porcine intestinal mucosa HS and heparin with moderately high affinity ( K D 73 and 43 nM, respectively). (arvojournals.org)
  • Pharmaceutical grade heparin is derived from mucosal tissues of slaughtered meat animals such as porcine (pig) intestine or bovine (cow) lung. (askdefine.com)
  • For example, this makes up 85% of heparins from beef lung and about 75% of those from porcine intestinal mucosa. (askdefine.com)
  • molecular
  • A fractionated version of heparin, known as low molecular weight heparin is also available. (wikipedia.org)
  • NSTEMI Atrial fibrillation Deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism Cardiopulmonary bypass for heart surgery ECMO circuit for extracorporeal life support Hemofiltration Indwelling central or peripheral venous catheters Heparin and its low-molecular-weight derivatives (e.g., enoxaparin, dalteparin, tinzaparin) are effective in preventing deep vein thromboses and pulmonary emboli in people at risk, but no evidence indicates any one is more effective than the other in preventing mortality.

  • This list contains a list of EC numbers for the fourth group, EC 4, lyases, placed in numerical order as determined by the Nomenclature Committee of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is also important to note that metagenomic analysis of fecal samples does not include all important molecular interactions within the gastrointestinal tract. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • Nevertheless, the solution structure of a heparin dodecasacchride composed solely of six GlcNS(6S)-IdoA(2S) repeat units has been determined using a combination of NMR spectroscopy and molecular modeling techniques. (askdefine.com)
  • Definition
  • In light of the discovery of morpheeins, however, this definition could be expanded to include mutations that shift an equilibrium of alternate oligomeric forms of a protein. (wikipedia.org)
  • species
  • Prevotella, a new genus to include Bacteroides melaninogenicus and related species formerly classified in the genus Bacteroides. (atcc.org)
  • Some researchers point out that about 70% of medicinal plant species with tuber roots have various degrees of consecutive monoculture problems, including P. heterophylla , Rehmannia glutinosa , Panax notoginseng and Angelica sinensis , etc. [ 5 ]. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • result
  • The other complication is hyperkalemia, which occurs in 5 to 10% of patients receiving heparin, and is the result of heparin-induced aldosterone suppression. (wikipedia.org)
  • main
  • It has been proposed that, rather than anticoagulation, the main purpose of heparin is defense at such sites against invading bacteria and other foreign materials. (wikipedia.org)
  • especially
  • Heparin is contraindicated in those with risk of bleeding (especially in people with uncontrolled blood pressure, liver disease, and stroke), severe liver disease, or severe hypertension. (wikipedia.org)
