Wikipedia Heparin
The exact structure of commercial heparin varies according to the conformation of its disaccharide subunits. Heparin is a polymer made up from carbohydrate subunits. The structure shown here matches the structure for the CAS registry number 9005-49-6. A natural product, found in various species, heparin is used clinically as an anti-coagulant. Commercial preparations usually vary in size from 12-15 kDa, while a low molecular weight variant is also available. Database entries may specify the sodium salt forms.
