Sulfated hyaluronic acid is known to stabilize growth factors, such as FGF1 and FGF2. As a result it is expected to be used as a substitute for sulfated polysaccharides in the context of regenerative medicine as well as in several other fields where sulfated polysaccharides may be needed.
TCI offers sulfated hyaluronic acid with various sulfation degree that can be modified by changing the synthetic reaction.
