Abstract:

It has been demonstrated that heparin can sequester calcium and, based on this ability, mechanisms for several physiological functions for heparin are proposed. It is suggested that the calcium sequestering ability of heparin, apparently a neglected attribute, may be one of the general characteristics required for the multifaceted physiological functions attributed to heparin.
