Heparinase II enzyme cleaves at the 1-4 linkages between hexosamines and uronic acid residues (both glucuronic and iduronic) of heparin and heparan sulfate (relative activity about 1:2), yielding oligoaccharides (mainly disaccharides).

Located in the extracellular matrix, the glycosaminoglycan of heparin plays important physiological roles in anticoagulation and angiogenesis. The acidic polysaccharide of Heparin consists of a heterogeneous disaccharide repeating unit of hexosamine and uronic acid (L-iduronic or D-glucuronic acid) connected through 1-4 linkages and modified with various functional groups.

The three heparinase enzymes (heparinase I, heparinase II, and heparinase III) produced by Flavobacterium heparinum specifically recognize and cleave at different sequences of heparin and heparan sulfate. If interested, please see more information about heparinases and their heparin-related applications.
