- Charged with or containing sulphates: as, a sulphated saline or sulphated aluminous mineral water.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
This is also a sulphated galactan, extracted from red seaweeds such as Chondrus,
The best known of these is agar, a sulphated galactan which is extensively used in microbiological and public health laboratories, as a culture medium for bacteria and fungi.
Where the patient is of "full habit," with portal stagnation, the sulphated alkaline or mild bitter waters are indicated, especially those of Carlsbad and Marienbad; but the use of these strong waters must be followed by a long rest under strict hygienic conditions.
In the anaemia dependent on malarial infection, the muriated or alkaline sulphated waters at spas of considerable elevation and combined with iron and arsenic are often very beneficial.
The alkaline sulphated waters, the bitter waters and the common salt waters can all be prescribed, and after a short course can be supplemented with various forms of active and passive exercises.
By much the best mode of employing urine is in the form of sulphated urine, which is made by adding to it a sufficient quantity of sulphuric acid to neutralize its ammonia, and evaporating to dryness.
It is believed that proteoglycans such as perlecan, which are rich in the sulphated glycosaminoglycan heparan sulphate, play an important role in the retention of lipoproteins to endothelial extracellular matrix.
Heparin agarose beads were used as a model of a matrix rich in sulphated glycosaminoglycans, to which histones bind strongly.
Histones and other polycationic proteins are known to bind strongly to polyanions, most notably the highly sulphated glycosaminoglycan, heparin.
This indicates that histones non-covalently linked to a sulphated glycosaminoglycan-containing matrix under physiological conditions of pH and salt concentration are capable of binding LDL, suggesting a similar mechanism for lipoprotein retention to that proposed for lipoprotein lipase
