Dextran MW 35000-50000--N/H
Dextran is a high molecular weight polymer of anhydroglucose. It is composed of approximately 95% alpha-D-(1-->6) linkages. The remaining a(1-->3) linkages account for the branching of dextran. Dextran has long and hydrophilic spacer arms that improves the performance of immobilized proteins acting on macromolecules.
