Description

Our Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) contains 583 amino acid residues derived from the prototypical bovine serum albumin sequence. Suitable for use as a biochemical, excipient (an inert substance used as a diluent or vehicle for a protein), in cell culture media and chromatographic applications.

Summary

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. 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.
