Easier Synthesis Reported For One Form of Heparin
By combining chemical and enzymatic synthesis, scientists have come up with a faster and cheaper way to make the smallest form of heparin.
If commercialization works out, the findings could extend the market reach of ultralow molecular weight heparin, as this form is called. And the chemoenzymatic synthesis that the researchers described in the Oct. 28, 2011, issue of Science marks progress on the way to a larger goal: synthesizing full-length heparin.
