Controlling amounts of heparan sulphate, a carbohydrate needed for fetal development

Heparan sulphate occurs as carbohydrate chains which are very important for human body cells both for normal fetal development and during the course of various diseases. All new molecular knowledge concerning these chains is therefore important. Researchers can now show that the same enzyme which determines the charge pattern of the chains also determines their length….
