Albumin Information for Pathologists
Most common serum protein. 65K protein produced by ALB gene on #4, by liver (Wikipedia). 50% of total plasma protein content; usual serum concentration of 40 g/L. Binds to water, bilirubin, calcium, fatty acids, hormones (acts as carrier protein), potassium, sodium, and various drugs. Main function of serum albumin is to regulate blood colloidal osmotic pressure.
Notable Clinical Features:
Laboratory:. For serum albumin measure, most instrument systems do NOT have satisfactory total-error performance (Arch Pathol Lab Med 2013;137:912). Serum albumin may be a low cost diagnostic marker for tuberculosis in HIV+ patients eligible for antiretroviral therapy (Bioimpacts 2013;3:123). In type 2 diabetes patients with stable angina and chronic total coronary occlusion, increased serum glycated albumin levels are associated with impaired coronary collateral growth (Cardiovasc Diabetol 2013;12:165). Deficiency causes familial dysalbuminemic hyperthyroxinemia (MIM:103600).
