Human albumin constitutes around 55% of the protein present in the plasma of normal healthy individuals. It is a single polypeptide chain of 585 amino acids with a molecular weight of 66 kDa.
The functions of human serum albumin include maintaining oncotic pressure; binding substances or drugs; regulating endogenous substances, metabolism; plasma buffer; antioxidant function; maintaining microvascular integrity; anticoagulant effects; inflammatory/anti-inflammatory effects; cell-signaling process. (Nicholson et al., 2000; Evans, 2002) Albumin also has functions that may play a critical role and have a great impact on different types of diseases, including hypo-albumin anemia and peripheral edema.
