Significance of the 2-O-sulfo group of L-iduronic acid residues in heparin on the growth inhibition of bovine pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells
Heparin inhibits the growth of several cell types in vitro, including bovine pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (BPASMCs). To understand more about the heparin structure required for endogenous activity, chemically modified derivatives of native heparin and glycol-split heparin, namely, 2-O-desulfonated iduronic/glucuronic acid residues in heparin, and 2-O-desulfonated iduronic residues in glycol-split heparin were prepared. These were assayed for their antiproliferative potency on cultured...[Show more]
