Albumin, present in the blood, is the most abundant protein. Structurally, albumin comprises three homologous domains (DI, DII, and DIII) with 67% α-helices.
Albumin from mouse serum has been used:
- as a standard in the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) with urine samples
- in the preparation of isolevuglandin (IsoLG)-albumin adducts for immunohistochemical staining of human tissue samples
- for comparative studies with thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP) to test its effect on dermal thickness in mice
5 mg in glass bottle
25 mg in poly bottle
Albumin transports fatty acids, drugs, and hormones. Mouse serum albumin (MSA) binds to the neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn).
Prepared from albumin (A3139).
Albumin from mouse serum is free of globulin. It is derived from Swiss Webster strain mouse serum by cold alcohol fractionation. There are no heating steps involved in the preparation of this product.
This Fraction V albumin can be used for making immune complexes with anti-albumin antibodies. Fatty acids will not interfere with the complex formation.
