Heparin sodium 180 U/mg - CAS 9041-08-1

Heparin sodium (CAS 9041-08-1) is a sodium salt of heparin which is a naturally-occurring anticoagulant used for anticoagulation for cardiovascular disease.

Heparin contains a specific pentasaccharide sequence that binds and activates the plasma proteinase inhibitor AT, which accounts for most of the increase in inhibitory activity toward Factor Xa induced by heparin. Heparin binds, via the specific pentasaccharide sequence, to AT is a two-step process, involving formation of an initial complex with a Kd of ∼4×10
