Product Specific Information
MA1-19174 detects albumin in human samples.
MA1-19174 has been successfully used in ELISA, immunohistochemistry (paraffin), radioimmune assay and Western blot procedures.
The MA1-19174 immunogen is ammonium sulphate precipitation and DEAE-chromatography of human serum.
Store at 4ºC. For long term storage, aliquot and store at -20ºC. Avoid freeze/thaw cycles.
Serum albumin, a globular unglycosylated protein of molecular weight 65,000, is 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. Albumin is synthesized in the liver as preproalbumin, which has an N-terminal peptide that is removed before the nascent protein is released from the rough endoplasmic reticulum. The product, proalbumin, is in turn cleaved in the Golgi vesicles to give the secreted albumin.
