Name Serum albumin
Synonyms Not Available
Gene Name ALB
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Involved in transport
Specific Function Serum albumin, the main protein of plasma, has a good binding capacity for water, Ca(2+), Na(+), K(+), fatty acids, hormones, bilirubin and drugs. Its main function is the regulation of the colloidal osmotic pressure of blood. Major zinc transporter in plasma, typically binds about 80% of all plasma zinc
