Heparinases

Overview

Heparinases, also called heparin lyases, are widely used in heparin assays.

Our heparinases are natural enzymes, produced from Flavobacterium Heparinum. Compared with recombinant enzymes, natural heparinases show higher stabilities and great degradation capabilities, which makes them ideal tools for key applications, such as structure identification and elucidation of heparin and heparan sulfate.

Each enzyme has different act sites, as shown in the following graphs.

Heparinase I

Heparinase II

Heparinase III

For ease of use, our heparinases are stored in liquid form. When using, just dilute them with PBS buffer to an appropriate concentration.

Our Flavobacterium heparinum strain with improved yields and unique fermentation techniques promise a large supply.

Storage: heparinases and their dilute solutions must be kept at -96 to - 20 ℃.
