Analysis of 3-O-sulfo group containing heparin tetrasaccharides in heparin by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, G. Li, B. Yang, L. Li, F. Zhang, C. Xue, R. J. Linhardt, Analytical Biochemistry,455, 3–9, 2014.
Complete heparin digestion with heparin lyase 2 affords a mixture of disaccharides and resistant tetrasaccharides with 3-O-sulfo group-containing glucosamine residues at their reducing ends. Quantitative online liquid chromatography-mass spectrometric analysis of these resistant tetrasaccharides is described in this article. The disaccharide and tetrasaccharide compositions of seven porcine intestinal heparins and five low-molecular-weight heparins were analyzed by this method. These resistant tetrasaccharides account for from 5.3 to 7.3wt% of heparin and from 6.2 to 8.3wt% of low-molecular-weight heparin. Because these tetrasaccharides are derived from heparin's antithrombin III-binding sites, we examined whether this method could be applied to estimate the anticoagulant activity of heparin. The content of 3-O-sulfo group-containing tetrasaccharides in a heparin correlated positively (r=0.8294) to heparin's anticoagulant activity.;
