General description

Bovine serum albumin (BSA) belongs to the serum albumin family. It comprises three domains with two sub-domains under each. It is an α-helical, globular and non-glycosylated protein. BSA has 17-disulfide bonds.


Bovine Serum Albumin solution has been used in the blocking of nonspecific binding in brain sections prior to light microscopy studies.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) is a transporter for drugs, hormones and fatty acids. It is a crucial component of the cell culture media and favors embryonic stem cells (hESC) differentiation. BSA displays high solubility and is exploited in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry.It is used as a blocking agent in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).

Analysis Note

Tested for avidity with known incomplete antibody (not saline agglutinable).
