Bovine serum albumin (BSA) is a 66 kDa α-helical, globular and non-glycosylated protein. It is characterized with three domains with two subdomains under each. It belongs to the serum albumins family and has 17-disulfide bonds.
Bovine serum albumin (BSA) is the main protein synthesized in the liver that constitutes over 50% of total serum proteins.
Monoclonal Anti-Bovine Serum Albumin antibody is specific for SDS-denatured and reduced BSA. While the product is highly cross reactive with goat and sheep serum; it has a lower affinity for dog, turkey and horse serum albumins.
