Product Description

Albumin, Bovine

Application Notes

A fatty acid free bovine albumin powder designed for the most sensitive research and diagnostic applications. Manufactured by a process specifically designed to give consistently low levels of residual metabolites and enzymes. Especially suitable for RIA and enzyme kits as a protein base. Albumin is used to solubilize lipids, stabilize protein solutions, and is also used as a blocking agent in Western blots or ELISA applications. Globulin free albumins are suitable for use in applications where no other proteins should be present such as electrophoresis. Insulin RIA: 1 micro unit/gm T3 and T4 at or below detectable levels.

Usage Statement

Unless specified otherwise, MP Biomedical's products are for research or further manufacturing use only, not for direct human use. For more information, please contact our customer service department.

Key Applications

Antibody Purification | Blood banking reagents | Electrophoresis standard | ELISA | Protein Standard | Protein base or filler

Biochemical Physiological Actions Certain conformational and primary-sequence epitopes of BSA are suspected allergens in human beef and milk allergies. Albumin binds water, Ca2+, Na+ and K+. Due to a hydrophobic cleft, albumin binds fatty acids, bilirubin, hormones and drugs. The main biological function of albumin is to regulate the colloidal osmotic pressure of blood and to a lesser degree to provide cellular nutrition. Human and bovine albumins contain 16% nitrogen and are often used as standards in protein calibration studies.
