Dextran sulfate is an anionic derivative of dextran produced by sulfation of selected dextran fractions. Dextran is a polysaccharide derived from the bacterium Leuconostoc mesenteroides B512F and consists of an α-D-(1 – 6) linear glucan with a low content (ca. 5%) of sidechains linked to the 3-carbon of glucose. We now supply two series of dextran sulfates; one series with high sulfate content (16-20% sulfur) and another series with lower sulfate content (8-13% sulfur).
TdB Labs produce dextran sulfates with a mean molecular weight ranging from 5 kDa to 2000 kDa.
All our dextran sulfates are manufactured by the same process which gives pure white products.
High sulfate dextran
CAS Number: 9011-18-1
The degree of sulfatation of our high sulfated dextran sulfates lies between 16 to 20 %. We produce high sulfated dextran sulfates from 5 kDa to 2000 kDa.
