Many pathogens take advantage of the dependence of the host on the interaction of hundreds of extracellular proteins with the glycosaminoglycans heparan sulfate to regulate homeostasis and use heparan sulfate as a means to adhere and gain access to cells. Moreover, mucosal epithelia such as that of the respiratory tract are protected by a layer of mucin polysaccharides, which are Author: Courtney J Mycroft-West, Dunhao Su, Stefano Elli, Scott E Guimond, Gavin J Miller, Jeremy E Turnbull. 2.

Heparan sulfate (HS) is a member of the glycosaminoglycans (GAG) family that plays essential roles in biological processes from animal sources. Heparin, a highly sulfated form of HS, is widely used as anticoagulant drug worldwide. The high diversity and complexity of HS and heparin represent a Cited by:
Heparin vs. Heparan Sulfate. Heparin is only produced by mast cells. It functions as an anticoagulant. HS is made by almost all cell types and also has anticoagulant activity, but it is much lower than that of heparin. HS further varies from heparin in the degree of modification of the sugar residues. The chemistry, biochemistry and pharmacology of heparin and heparan sulfate have been and continue to be a major scientific undertaking - heparin and its derivative remain important drugs in clinical practice.
