Preparation Note

Prepared from albumin (A 7638) and α-lactose coupled via reductive amination.

Physical form

Lyophilized powder containing citrate buffer salts

Application

Bovine serum albumin (BSA) is extensively used for drug delivery since it is widely available, cheap and easily purified, has ligand-binding properties, and is widely accepted in the pharmaceutical industry.
Albumin was used in a study to test the transfer mechanism of regulated blood-cerebrospinal fluid in immature rats.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Albumin is the most important circulatory protein involved in the control of Ca2+ (and Mg2+) levels in mammals.

General description

The most abundant plasma protein in mammals is albumin. It is produced in the liver and transferred as a non-glycosylated protein into the plasma. This multifunctional protein has an amazing ability to bind to ligands.
