  • 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.

  • ab10241 staining Human Serum Albumin in human embryonic stem cell derived hepatocytes by immunocytochemistry/ immunofluorescence.

    Cells were fixed in methanol and blocked in 10% BSA for 30 minutes at 20°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/500 and incubated with the sample for 16 hours at 4°C. An FITC conjugated goat polyclonal to mouse IgG antibody, diluted 1/400, was used as the secondary (green). DAPI used to stain the nuclei (blue).

Thank you for contacting us.

For ab10241 the lab let me know how the cross-reactivity with BSA was tested:

We have determined the cross-reactivityto BSA in a dot-blot method. We tested in parallel sera from several animal species and also purified HSA and BSA. The antibody was not reacting with BSA.

I have also inquired about the crossreactivity of our HSA ELISA kit ab108788 with BSA, and am waiting to hear back. I will let you know what I find out.

Thank you for your patience.

According to the testing data and Abreviews from customers on the datasheet, this antibody has been used successfully with various blocking agents including BSA. For example, there is an Abeview where BSA has been used as a blocking agent in WB:


However, please note protocols can sometimes require individual optimization.

Thank you for contacting us.

I have heard back from the lab:
For ab2406, for use with human tissues, BSA may work but for other species it may crossreact.
For ab10241, it is not crossreacting with BSA.

Thus using BSA would be fine, but I might suggest trying this in a test experiment before doing the antibody array.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Vielen Dank für Ihren Anruf.
Tatsächlich hat eine meiner Kolleginnen mit der Turbidimetrie gearbeitet, und nach einiger Diskussion sind wir der Meinung, dass für Ihren Kunden Antikörper, die in ELISA und/oder IP funktionieren, geeignet sein sollte.
Ich habe Ihnen daher folgende Produkte heraus gesucht:
ab10241 Anti-Human Serum Albumin antibody [15C7]
ab104453 Anti-Lipoprotein a antibody
ab7616 Anti-Apolipoprotein B antibody
Allerdings habe ich nichts für das CRP gefunden.
Ich hoffe, dies hilft Ihnen weiter. Bitte zögern Sie nicht, sich wieder bei uns zu melden, falls Sie weitere Fragen haben.

Thank you for your enquiry.

I am sorry the immunogen used to create ab10241 Human Serum Albumin antibody [15C7] is not available. In theory,it could be used with ab67670 Human Serum Albumin protein, however you will need to consider that this is a recombinant protein, not endogenous, and has not been tested together with the antibody in the laboratory.

I am sorry this is not better news for you on this occasion. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Vielen Dank für Ihren Anruf.

Ich habe mich mit dem Labor in Verbindung gesetzt, welches diesen Antikörper herstellt. Leider wurde die leichte Kette nicht bestimmt.

"Unfortunately we have not determined if this MAb is a kappa or lambda chain. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

Ich hoffe, dies hilft Ihnen trotzdem weiter. Bitte zögern Sie nicht, sich wieder bei uns zu melden, falls Sie weitere Fragen haben.
