In this study, 17 sulfated oligosaccharides were assessed by the activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) test for their anticoagulant activity and nine were found to exhibit significant activity. Chain length, monosaccharide makeup, and linkage all appear to be critical factors in determining anticoagulant activity, with the most active compounds being five- to sixfold less potent than unfractionated heparin (UFH). Phosphomannopentaose sulfate (PI-88), one of the most active sulfated...[Show more]
