  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Albumin Human in vitro competitive ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the measurement of albumin in Human plasma and serum.

    An albumin specific antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates and blocked. Standards or test samples are added to the wells and subsequently biotinylated albumin is added and then followed by washing with wash buffer. Streptavidin-Peroxidase Complex is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with wash buffer. TMB is then used to visualize Streptavidin-Peroxidase enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by Streptavidin-Peroxidase to produce a blue color product that changes into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration is inversely proportional to the amount of albumin captured in plate.

    Get results in 90 minutes with Human Serum Albumin ELISA Kit (ab179887) from our SimpleStep ELISA® range.

  • 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.
  • Tissue specificity
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in ALB are a cause of familial dysalbuminemic hyperthyroxinemia (FDH) [MIM:103600]. FDH is a form of euthyroid hyperthyroxinemia that is due to increased affinity of ALB for T(4). It is the most common cause of inherited euthyroid hyperthyroxinemia in Caucasian population.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the ALB/AFP/VDB family.
    Contains 3 albumin domains.
  • Post-translational
    Kenitra variant is partially O-glycosylated at Thr-620. It has two new disulfide bonds Cys-600 to Cys-602 and Cys-601 to Cys-606.
    Glycated in diabetic patients.
    Phosphorylation sites are present in the extracelllular medium.
    Acetylated on Lys-223 by acetylsalicylic acid.
