DESCRIPTION AND APPLICATIONS: Albumin is a soluble, monomeric protein which comprises about one-half of the blood serum protein. Albumin functions primarily as a carrier protein for steroids, fatty acids, and thyroid hormones and plays a role in stabilizing extracellular fluid volume. Albumin is synthesized in the liver as preproalbumin which has an N-terminal peptide that is removed before the nascent protein is released from the rough endoplasmic reticulum. The product, proalbumin, is in turn cleaved in the Golgi vesicles to produce the secreted albumin. This antibody should be used in conjunction with a panel of antibodies to aid in the identification of albumin in target tissue (e.g., in the diagnosis of renal or dermal pathologies). The interpretation of the results should be always corroborated with those of external controls and integrated with the morphological and clinical aspectsfor the final diagnosis.
