  • 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.
  • Cellular localization

  • Information by UniProt
  • Database links

  • Form

    There are 2 isoforms produced by alternative splicing.

Thanks for your reply. Either one of these 2 anti-albumin antibodies may work in flow although neither has yet been tested in that application. However we can't guarantee that they will work in flow. As we can't offer our Abpromise guarantee for flow with ab106582 or ab106784, you may be interested in the testing discount program described below. For purposes of the example I have used ab106582 but you can use this program with either antibody (or both): To our knowledge, ab/xxx/ has not been tested in flow cytometry. I can offer a discount off a future purchase if you buy ab106582 now, test it in flow cytometry and submit feedback to us in the form of an Abreview. It doesn’t matter whether the Abreview is positive or negative, we would just really like to receive your feedback. The discount would be to the value of 1 free primary antibody. If you are interested in this offer, please follow these steps: 1. Reply to this e-mail to let me know that you would like to proceed and test ab106582 in flow cytometry. I will then send a discount code. This code must be issued before purchasing ab106582 so please wait for my reply before ordering. 2. Purchase ab106582 either by phone, fax, or online (www.abcam.com). 3. Test it in flow cytometry. 4. Let us know the results, positive or negative, using our Abreview system (this will take about 10 minutes and images are great if you have them!). To find out how to submit an Abreview, please visit: https://www.abcam.com/abreviews. 5. After the review is submitted to us, the discount code becomes active. Simply place your new order by phone, fax, or on the web and mention the discount code. The discount can be redeemed for any primary antibody ordered and the discount code is valid for 4 months after issue. We are always pleased to obtain feedback about our products and any information is greatly appreciated! Even if ab106582 turns out to be unsuitable for flow cytometry, you will still receive the discount on your next purchase after your Abreview has been submitted. Please let me know if you have any questions about this offer and I would be happy to help you further. The Terms and Conditions of this offer can be found at: www.abcam.com/collaborationdiscount.
