Albumin is a soluble, monomeric protein with a molecular weight of approximately 65-67 kDa that comprises about one-half of the blood serum protein. Human serum albumin (HAS) is the most abundant protein in human blood plasma, and has a serum half-life of approximately 20 days. 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 a globular, unglycosylated serum protein synthesized in the liver as pre-pro-albumin which has an N-terminal peptide that is removed before the nascent protein is released from the rough `produce the secreted albumin. Serum albumin has a good binding capacity for water, Ca(2+), Na(+), K(+), fatty acids, hormones, bilirubin and drugs. The main function of albumin is the regulation of the colloidal osmotic pressure of blood.
