Leading experts in glycosaminoglycan building blocks

Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are essential for many vital biological processes in all living organisms. We offer a range of important building blocks for the synthesis of such GAG oligosaccharide targets.

The group consists of Hyaluronan (HA), Chondroitin sulfate (CS), Dermatan sulfate (DS), Keratan sulfate (KS), Heparin (H) and Heparan sulfate (HS). They are made up of linear polysaccharides containing repeating disaccharide units belonging to the group D-Glucosamine, D-Galactosamine, D-Glucuronic acid, L-Iduronic acid and D-Galactose.

To probe, understand and develop new therapeutics the role of each GAG can be investigated with chemical synthesis of fragments and mimetics of the naturally abundant polysaccharides. This requires access to chemical building blocks with appropriate protection groups installed.
