  1. aD.S.: degree of sulfation, average number of sulfate groups per disaccharide unit of GAG. bMn: number-average molecular weight, determined by Laser Light Scattering (LLS) detection and Refraction (RI) detection (in brackets). cMw: weight-average molecular weight, determined by LLS detection and RI detection (in brackets). dPD: polydispersity index based on the values calculated from RI detection.
