Abstract
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) represent a division of carbohydrate chemistry with research applications in a variety of engineering, analytical, and biological disciplines. Heparan sulfate, and the structurally related GAG heparin, have been identified as the most important GAGs due to their biological and pharmacological potential. The issues associated with heparan sulfate and heparin research and production are important for the generation of industrial, medical, and academic targets.
