A protein found in the blood. It is responsible for keeping water balance within the body.
an abundant protein in the body produced in the liver from amino acids.
is the major plasma protein (approximately 60 per cent of the total). It is synthesized by liver. It have three main functions : 1/maintain the osmotic pressure (it's a force that keep back plasma into blood vessel, opposing to blood (hydrostatic) pressure), 2/ transport of ions (e.g. calcium), bilirubin, fats, hormones and drug, 3/store amino acids. Albumin decrease when production decreases (liver disease, malnutrition) or loss increases (kidney disease).
One of the major proteins circulating in the bloodstream and only made in the liver. It has a role in fluid distribution in the body.
Albumin is the most abundant protein in the blood plasma. Increased albumin levels may indicate dehydration. Low levels may occur in malnutrition and some chronic diseases.
a class of simple, water-soluble proteins that are the main component of blood. Albumin is a constituent in a majority of all blood proteins and is circulated throughout nearly all tissues and organs in the body via the blood.
is the protein of the highest concentration in plasma manufactured by the liver. It performs many functions including (a) maintaining the oncotic pressure of the blood in order for fluid to remain within the blood stream instead of leaking out into the tissues and (b) transporting many small molecules in the blood. In pharmacotheraphy, the most important albumin is serum albumin. It is the protein to which drugs bind in the blood, and, as such, acts as both a carrier and reservoir system for many drugs in the systematic circulation. ( medical encyclopedia)
A protein which if found in the urine of a pregnant woman can be a sign of pre-eclampsia.
a simple water-soluble protein found in many animal tissues and liquids
Natural human protein; it is an integral transporter of nutrients to the body and is a source of food for the tumor
One of three major types of proteins (albumin, globulin, fibrinogen) found in the blood. The function of this protein is to prevent loss of fluid from the blood vessels.
Albumin is one of the major plasma proteins. It has many functions in the blood plasma including carrying molecules (and some drugs) throughout the body.
is a type of protein made from the dietary protein. A low albumin may be due to inadequate protein or calorie intake. In kidney disease, albumin is lost in the urine which adds to the low albumin level caused by poor nutrition. Albumin may drop after surgery or with blood loss. It may also drop during periods of infection.
A protein in many animal and vegetable tissues, including human plasma.
( product literature) One of a group of simple proteins widely distributed in plant and animal tissues; it is found in the blood as serum albumin, in milk as lactalbumin, and in the white of egg as ovalbumin. In the blood, albumin acts as a carrier molecule and helps to maintain blood volume and blood pressure. In humans, the principal function of albumin is to provide colloid osmotic pressure, preventing plasma loss from the capillaries. Albumin, like all the plasma proteins, can act as a source for rapid replacement of tissue proteins. It is soluble in cold water; when coagulated by heat it is no longer dissolved by cold or hot water. In the stomach, coagulated albumins are made soluble by peptase, being changed at the same time into albumoses and peptones. In general, albumins from animal sources are of higher quality than those from vegetable sources because animal proteins contain greater quantities of essential amino acids.
The most prevalent protein found in blood. It is used as a stabilizer in the manufacturing process of several Factor VIII therapies.
A protein, tested for in the urine. Increased amounts "leak" out into the urine when the kidney is inflammed.
Protein that is present in the blood, but can also be found in the urine.
A fluid filled with water-soluble proteins.
The major plasma protein (approximately 60 per cent of the total), which is responsible for much of the plasma colloidal osmotic pressure and serves as a transport protein carrying large organic anions such as fatty acids, bilirubin and many drugs; also carries certain hormones such as cortisol and thyroxine when their specific binding globulins are saturated. Albumin is synthesized in the liver. Low serum levels occur in protein malnutrition, active inflammation and serious hepatic and renal disease.
A circulating protein produced by the liver. In severe liver disease, albumin levels may be low.
Blood protein that may appear in urine when kidneys are damaged.
A type of protein widely distributed in the tissues and fluids of plants and animals. It is the single most abundant protein in blood. Albumin acts as a carrier for numerous substances in the blood.
a protein found in blood plasma and urine, which can be a sign of kidney disease.
A protein found in most animal and many plant tissues that coagulates on heating.
A major protein found in blood
A class of simple, water-soluble proteins that can be coagulated by heat and are found in egg white, blood serum, milk, and many other animal and plant tissues.
One of a class of simple proteins in the blood. The level of albumin may reflect the amount of protein intake in food.
Simple protein widely distributed throughout the tissues.
a protein found in bodily tissues and fluids; the principal protein in blood plasma. A reduced level of albumin in the serum of persons with AIDS-related wasting syndrome is a sign of progressive wasting and suggests a high risk of death.
A blood protein which helps to prevent edema by drawing fluid from the tissues into the blood.
a common protein found in many animal tissues (eg, blood, muscle, etc.)
One of the most important proteins manufactured by the liver. Low albumin levels in the blood usually indicate poor liver function.
a protein manufactured by the liver
A protein made in the liver that assists in maintaining blood volume in the arteries and veins. If the liver is damaged, then the albumin can drop to very low levels, which may cause fluid to leak into the tissues from the blood vessels, resulting in edema or swelling. In acute liver failure, there is an accumulation of fluid in the abdomen that is known as "ascites".
The main protein in human blood and the key to the regulation of the osmotic pressure of blood. Chemically, albumin is soluble in water, precipitated by acid, and coagulated by heat. See the entire definition of Albumin

a form of protein
Albumin is a protein that circulates in the blood..
a water soluble protein. Serum albumin is found in blood plasma and is important for maintaining plasma volume and osmotic pressure of circulating blood. Albumin is synthesized in the liver. The inability to synthesize albumin is a predominant feature of chronic liver disease.
Albumin constitutes approximately 60% of the total protein in the blood. It is a measure of liver function and overall nutritional status.
A group of soluble proteins that remain in beer, affecting head retention and stability.
The most abundant protein component of blood, Produced primarily in the liver, albumin helps to keep the fluid portion of blood within the vessels, and helps transport drugs and other substances by way of the bloodstream. Low levels of albumin in the blood or its presence in urine may signal edema (the accumulation of fluid) as in pedal edema (in the ankles) or pulmonary edema (in the lungs), which may be symptoms of congestive heart failure, kidney or liver disease.
