Chemical Heparin

Name Heparin
Equivalent Terms alpha Heparin | alpha-Heparin | Heparinic Acid | Heparin Sodium | Heparin, Sodium | Heparin, Unfractionated | Liquaemin | Sodium Heparin | Unfractionated Heparin
CAS Registry Number 9005-49-6
Definition 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.
