Glycosaminoglycan is a type of long, unbranched polysaccharide molecule. Glycosaminoglycans are major structural components of cartilage and are also found in the cornea of the eye.
People's ability to regenerate bones declines with age and is further decreased by diseases such as osteoporosis.
Osteoarthritis – a painful condition that results from the deterioration of the cartilage in our joints – affects millions of people worldwide.
AMSBIO reports how researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine (St. Louis, USA) have used their 10E4 Heparan Sulfate (HS) antibody in pioneering obesity research to quantify the role of HS in the process of intercellular mitochondria transfer to macrophages.
Drawing upon over 30-years’ experience of serving the glycobiology research community - AMSBIO has established a comprehensive portfolio of high-quality reagents including unique ranges of antibodies, lectins, enzymes, assay kits and standards, backed by in-depth technical support.
The capacity of the COVID-19 virus’s spikes to bind to human cells may be hampered by molecules from the same family as the anticoagulant medication heparin.
