The heparin/heparan sulfate-like glycosaminoglycans (HLGAGs) play important roles in the regulation of many biological processes. However, a controlled application has been limited because of their heterogeneity and difficulty in synthesis. To solve the problems, many synthetic mimics including sulfated peptides have been prepared. Since the discovery of anti-HIV activity in oligo(tyrosine sulfate)s in our laboratory [1, 2], we have been interested in their potential as HLGAG mimics. In this study, we investigated their interactions with synthetic heparin-binding peptides using affinity chromatography and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS).

Results and Discussion

Binding affinities of the heparin-binding peptides were preliminarily compared by retention on a NaO3S-[Tyr(SO3Na)]9-immobilized affinity column and a H-[Tyr(SO3Na)]9-immobilized affinity column in the presence of increasing NaCl concentrations. Four...
