Gene Symbol:
ALB Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
albumin
Synonyms:
serum albumin, PRO0883, PRO0903, PRO1341, DKFZp779N1935, cell growth inhibiting protein 42, albumin, albumin (32 AA), albumin (AA 34), GIG20, growth-inhibiting protein 20
Genomic Location:
Chr 4: 74488870-74505996
Description:
Albumin is a soluble, monomeric protein which comprises about one-half of the blood serum protein. Albumin functions primarily as a carrier protein for steroids, fatty acids, and thyroid hormones and plays a role in stabilizing extracellular fluid volume. Albumin is a globular unglycosylated serum protein of molecular weight 65,000. Albumin is synt...
