Albumin, Serum/Plasma


Albumin is a non-glycosylated (carbohydrate free) protein with a molecular weight of 66 KD. It is synthesised in the parenchymal cells of the liver and constitutes 55-65% of total serum or plasma protein. Albumin maintains oncotic plasma pressure and is involved in the transport of a wide variety of ligands and compounds found in the circulation. Albumin is also capable of binding toxic heavy metals and medicinal drugs.
