Description

Immunogen

purified human albumin

General description

Albumin, the major protein produced by liver cells, represents more than half of the total protein content of human serum. Many other body fluids also contain albumin. Three major functions for serum albumin have been proposed: maintenance of osmotic pressure, transportation of a variety of substances and an endogenous source of amino acids. The primary sites of albumin degradation are not known, but the protein can be metabolized by almost every organ in the body. Determination of serum albumin levels is a widely used screening test in clinical medicine. A decrease in serum albumin levels may indicate disease states such as malnutrition, cirrhosis, nephrotic syndrome, diabetes, gastrointestinal and hepatic diseases, thermal burns and pulmonary disease.

Goat polyclonal anti-Albumin antiserum is immunospecific for human albumin by immunoelectrophoresis against normal human serum and human albumin. Identity and purity of the specific antibody is established by immunoelectrophoresis (IEP). Electrophoresis of the antiserum followed by diffusion against anti-goat serum results in multiple arcs of precipitation, whereas against anti-goat IgG, it results in a single arc of precipitation in the γ region.

Physical form

Lyophilized from 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.2

Application

Goat polyclonal anti-Albumin antiserum is used to tag albumin for detection and quantitation by immunocytochemical and immunohistochemical (IHC) techniques. It is used as a probe to determine the presence and roles of albumin a variety of clinical indications.

Packaging
